Platinum selling rapper 50 Cent, who played a cancer-stricken football player in “Things Fall Apart,” returns to the big screen with Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe in a film called “Set Up.”
Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe co-star, as 50 plays the part of Sonny. After being betrayed by a partner in a jewel heist, 50 plots his revenge while also dealing with a local mob boss played by Willis. Set Up was actually the first project from the Cheetah Vision/Lions Gate partnership to be filmed, yet it is being released after Gun, Caught in the Crossfire, Twelve and Things Fall Apart.
Set Up is the latest of a 10-picture, $200 million deal struck between 50’s Cheetah Vision imprint and Lions Gate. News of Set Up follows 50 Cent’s debut of Things Fall Apart at the Miami International Film Festival.
