Hip-Hop star 50 Cent will star in an upcoming movie titled Dead Man Running.
In an interview with the BBC, British actor Danny Dyer divulged details of the movie, which is described as a gangster flick.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s about one guy who basically gets in a serious bit of trouble with a real gangster and heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s got one day to live or heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to get ironed out if he doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t raise the funds,Ã¢â‚¬Â Dyer said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“So, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s basically about a dead man running, which is him, and I play his sidekick whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s trying to get him out of trouble.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Also attached to Dead Man Running is Tamer Hassan, who has starred alongside Dyer in movies like Football Factory (2004) and The Business (2005).
The role is the latest for 50 Cent, who has a high profile role in the movie Righteous Kill, which stars legendary actors Robert DiNero and Al Pacino.
Dyer said that he was thrilled to be working with 50 Cent.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I don’t know about him as an actor. He’s definitely a presence We come from totally different backgrounds but he’s a great artist.Ã¢â‚¬Â
