50 Cent is one of the most popular rappers of his generation. As controversial as he might be, no one can deny his talent and acting skills. After his The 50th Law book, which was a New York Times best-seller was adapted into a series on Netflix, the rapper is all set to star in and executive produce Free Agents, a sports heist thriller that Deon Taylor will direct for Lionsgate.

To put it simply, it’s a movie about Football players pulling heists, stealing from their exploitative owners. Per The Hollywood Reporter.

Agents, described as a high concept sports action heist thriller, tells of a group of professional football players who come together to steal from the team owners who [are] exploiting them.

The story focuses on a journeyman player who gets his last shot at his dream but just as he starts to find some on field success, is lured into a dangerous crime ring with some of his teammates that threatens his dream, his family, and his safety. Jackson will play the leader of the ring, a veteran linebacker who pulls the young player into his dangerous scheme to get back at league owners.

In conversation with THR, Free Agents director Deon Taylor (FataleBlack and Blue) was all praises for the rapper after onboarding him for the football heist flick.

“50 has been legendary in all ways I have been extremely impressed by his amazing energy on screen and his ability to light up every scene he is in, I truly believe this extremely complex role will truly allow the world to understand just how unbelievably talented 50 is as an artist.”

The only problem that this interesting venture might face is getting 50 Cent to comply with COVID standards while shooting. We hope he follows all safety protocols so that we get to see him absolutely nail his role.
