50 Cent Joins Sports Heist “Free Agents”
Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson has come aboard to star in and executive produce the sports heist thriller “Free Agents” for Lionsgate. Deon Taylor (“Fatale”) co-wrote the script with Joe Bockol and will direct.
The high-concept film follows a group of professional football players who come together to steal from the team owners who are exploiting them.
The story centers on a journeyman player who gets his last shot at his dream, but is lured into a dangerous crime ring with some of his teammates that threatens everything.
Jackson will play the leader of the crime ring, a veteran linebacker who pulls the younger player into his dangerous scheme to get back at league owners. Roxanne Avent Taylor will produce.
