50 Cent In Final Negotiations To Star Opposite Samuel L. Jackson In ‘Home Of The Brave’

50 Cent is in final

negotiations to make his second motion picture appearance in the upcoming film

Home Of The Brave, opposite Samuel L. Jackson.

The plot revolves

around three soldiers returning from the war in Iraq and trying to readjust

to civilian life. Jackson plays a doctor who unravels during the course of the

film.

Other cast members

include Christina Ricci, Jessica Biel and Brian Presley. The film is based on

a screenplay by Mark Friedman and will be directed by Irwin Winkler.

Ironically, Jackson

turned down a starring role in 50 Cent’s big screen debut, Get Rich Or Die

Tryin’, despite a longtime desire to work with the film’s director, Jim

Sheridan.

Jackson has stated

on numerous occasions that he refuses to work with unproven rappers who earn

roles simply based on their popularity.

50 Cent lashed

out at the veteran actor, stating that the only role Jackson was suited for

in his movie was a "crackhead," in reference to Jackson’s past drug

addiction.

Get Rich has

grossed over $20 million dollars at the U.S. box office.

Home Of The

Brave has a $12 million dollar budget and is slated to start filming on

location in Morocco next month, with final production taking place in Spokane,

Wash.
