Fiddy Comes Out Swinging
Rapper to star in boxing movie with Nicolas Cage
50 Cent will return to the big screen alongside Nicolas Cage in a movie about real-life prison boxing coach Billy The Kid Roth.
Cage will play The Kid and Fiddy a convict who shows promise as a boxer in The Dance, which begins shooting early next year. Billy was a former champion who spent 40 years as a volunteer coach in Louisianas prisons.
"Billy Roths story truly spoke to my heart," said Cage. "Despite the darkness and intense despair, an unlikely and flawed character is able to find and provide hope to others."
