According to a new report from The Hollywood Reporter, the actor, producer and rapper will be partnering up under his G-Unit Film & Television banner with Roth’s Arts District Entertainment, a production company co-headed by Roger Birnbaum and Michael Besman as well. Indie film studio 3BlackDot will also be part of the deal and act as the financier for the three upcoming titles.
“Both 50 and James (Frey) have never shied away from controversial, boundary-pushing material and have made massive global cultural impacts from their raw creative energy,” said Roth said in a statement from Arts District Entertainment. “We want to bring that same fun and danger to this new fantastic slate of elevated scary films. We want to make the movies others are too afraid to make.”
“Eli, James, Roger, Michael, and 3BlackDot will be great partners in G-Unit Film and Television’s takeover of the horror genre,” added 50 Cent in his own statement. “I can’t wait to show the world what we’re building.”
