Bruce Willis & Ryan Phillippe Shamed50 Cent is the gift that keeps on giving. Last year, the rapper/actor made a 10-picture, $200 million deal between his Cheetah Vision production banner and Hedge Fund Film Partners which appears to be resulting in a bunch of films shot on the cheap with no attention given to any details or to even the most basic tenets of filmmaking. Case in point: "Things Fall Apart." But this time Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe were somehow conned into this latest fiasco, "Set Up," which now has a trailer and we have no idea who keeps getting hired to cut these (though we secret hope Fiddy is doing it himself).

Bruce Willis & Ryan Phillippe Shamed



50 Cent is the gift that keeps on giving. Last year, the rapper/actor made a 10-picture, $200 million deal between his Cheetah Vision production banner and Hedge Fund Film Partners which appears to be resulting in a bunch of films shot on the cheap with no attention given to any details or to even the most basic tenets of filmmaking. Case in point: "Things Fall Apart." But this time Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe were somehow conned into this latest fiasco, "Set Up," which now has a trailer and we have no idea who keeps getting hired to cut these (though we secret hope Fiddy is doing it himself).

Written and directed by stunt guy Mike Gunther, the film is about a diamond heist gone wrong. Apparently. As far as we can tell the entire movie takes place in an office building, limousine and a warehouse. There also appears to be Michelle Monaghan lookalike in here too. And while Willis can usually sell any piece of shit line given to him, even he can't salvage the clunky one liners that pepper this thing.

More sad and pathetic than hilarious, "Set Up" ultimately reveals that the real swindle might just be on whoever ends up watching this thing. Check out the trailer below. [via Vulture]
