50 Cent is set to star in and produce a horror movie called Skill House.
The movie will “examine social media and influencer culture, and what those new to the sphere are willing to do to attain fame.”
The film is scheduled to be released in early 2023 and will also be the start of a franchise.
Josh Stolberg (Spiral, Jigsaw) is writing and directing Skill House, which will have a large ensemble cast that includes Bryce Hall, a TikTok star, and Paige VanZant, a former UFC fighter, among many others. It will be produced at TikTok’s “collab house” in Los Angeles.
On Monday, 50 Cent announced the news and shared his excitement via Instagram about working with producer Ryan Kavanaugh, whose Proxima Media company is producing the film along with G-Unit Film & Television.
“In partnership with Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony-nominated mega-producer Ryan Kavanaugh,” he wrote. “Producers of Fast and Furious 2-6, 300, Social Network, Limitless, Fighter, Talladega Nights, Step Brothers, and Mama Mia, to name a few, I’m working let’s work GLG.”
Considering the various industries he has worked in throughout the years, Kavanaugh is just as thrilled to be working with 50 Cent.
“This film is bursting with mavericks of entertainment, many of them spanning multiple genres and platforms,” he said in a statement. “From a global rap and Hip Hop music icon to a businessman, actor, writer, and producer – if anyone knows a thing or two about breaking the boundaries, it’s 50 Cent. I’m honored to work alongside him as we watch Bryce do the same with his career.”
In addition to his role in Skill House, 50 will also appear in The Expendables 4 and Den of Thieves 2: Pantera.
