50 Cent continues to churn through the cash in the 10-picture, $200 million deal between his Cheetah Vision banner and Hedge Fund Film Partners. He's already got the unintentionally hilarious football drama "Things Fall Apart" and the unintentionally hilarious heist movie "Set Up" in the can (sensing a theme here?). Anyhow, the rapper/actor seems to have found a kindred spirit in Bruce Willis who will apparently do anything for money and will star, once again, with 50 Cent in another sure to be terrible movie.

50 Cent continues to churn through the cash in the 10-picture, $200 million deal between his Cheetah Vision banner and Hedge Fund Film Partners. He's already got the unintentionally hilarious football drama "Things Fall Apart" and the unintentionally hilarious heist movie "Set Up" in the can (sensing a theme here?). Anyhow, the rapper/actor seems to have found a kindred spirit in Bruce Willis who will apparently do anything for money and will star, once again, with 50 Cent in another sure to be terrible movie.

Variety reports that Fiddy, John McClane and Josh Duhamel will star in "Fire With Fire," a dumb title turned absolutely genius given the premise of the film. Written by Tom Conner, the film will center on a firefighter (movie title alert!) who goes into the witness protection program (this is getting even better), but takes matters into his own hands when the man he's testifying against threatens the love of his life.

David Barrett is going to direct and the film will be in the market at Cannes next week looking for buyers. Someone just please tell us when the sure to be amazing trailer hits.

And in related news, 50 Cent recently told Vibe he's pretty sure Christian Bale was on crack during the filming of "The Fighter" saying, "Christian Bale in 'The Fighter.' That was a performance. I know it was Mark Wahlberg's baby and wouldn't have happened without him, but Christian showed up. Let’s just say I grew up around people who indulged in drug addiction, and he convinced me he was on crack. I’m still not sure he wasn’t on crack." Someone get this guy opposite that Russian dude on "Ebert Presents At The Movies."
