Undeterred By "Tryin'" Flop, 50 Cent Signs On For More

He didn’t exactly get rich or die trying last year, but aspiring rapper-actor 50 Cent isn’t letting up on his Hollywood dream; he’s set to star in not one, but three upcoming projects.

Universal Pictures has announced plans to make crime-world heist pic "Live Bet" into another starring vehicle for the man otherwise known as Curtis Jackson. Jackson’s own G Unit Films (yes, you read that right) production wing will co-produce, ensuring some degree of quality control.

Before Mr. Cent can begin working on "Bet," he’s got two more films in the works. "Home of the Brave," directed by Irwin Winkler ("The Net," "Life as a House") follows three soldiers who’ve recently returned from Iraq, and actually boasts a decent cast (OK, decent by The WB standards): Samuel L. Jackson, Christina Ricci, Jessica Biel, and Chad Michael Murray. Word has it 50 Cent flew to Morocco to film some of this scenes, so look for him in desert soldier-mode.

Also on Fiddy’s slate is the boxing drama "The Dance," about a former prize fighter who volunteers as a boxing coach in the Louisiana prison system. The coach? Nic Cage. The fighter? We can only assume the one-time aspiring heavyweight 50 Cent will spend some time in the ring.
