(AllHipHop News) The independently produced film Twelve which stars 50 Cent in a leading role, was recently bought at The Sundance Film Festival by the film unit of Hannover House, a independent publisher and media company.
The film, which is directed by Joel Schumacher and based on the novel of the same name, sold for $2 million dollars.
Twelve features 50 as a young Harlem drug dealer, opposite Chance Crawford, from the series Gossip Girls.
50’s character sells drugs to Crawford’s character, in order to increase his business with the rich upper class.
When 50 talked with the New York Daily News about working on the film with Crawford, the rapper revealed that he made a fool of himself during the first day of filming.
“I made a fool of myself the first day of shooting,” the rapper told The New York Daily News. “I got to my trailer and I saw this huge crowd of girls screaming. I stopped and was kind of having a moment. Then I turned around, and Chace was behind me, and that’s who they were freaking out for.”
50 is also working on other film projects and is currently filming the movie Gun, in which he is starring alongside Val Kilmer, as well as Jekyll and Hyde, which features Academy Award winning actor Forest Whitaker.
