Rapper 50 CENT is to make his movie debut in the semi-autobiographical
LOCKED AND LOADED - about a former drug dealer who gives up a life of crime to
pursue a music career.
The movie, which is scheduled for release in late 2005 or early 2006, will
be produced by Jimmy Iovine and PAUL ROSENBERG - who produced Eminem's hit
movie 8 MILE.
THE SOPRANOS scriptwriter TERENCE WINTER has signed up to create a
screenplay and sources say the soundtrack will be released by Eminem's SHADY
RECORDS, to which 50 Cent is signed.
