50 Cent in talks to play cop with De Niro
Billboard is reporting that 50 Cent is in final negotiations to co-star with Robert De Niro in "New Orleans," a police thriller set to be directed by Tim Hunter. The film (previously titled "Microwave Park") centers on a cop who thinks his partner has died in Hurricane Katrina, only to discover that he was shot to death. When he gets a new partner, the pair investigates the murder, taking them on a journey into a world of police corruption. De Niro is attached to play the lead with 50 Cent in the role of his new partner. The project was originally set in Los Angeles but changed to New Orleans after the Katrina disaster. Production is tentatively scheduled to begin filming in the city in February. 50 Cent will next be seen in the Iraq War-themed "Home of the Brave," which opens in early January in U.S. theaters. He made his feature film debut last year in the semi-autobiographical "Get Rich or Die Tryin'."
