We haven't made very much of Starz's recently-premiered and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson-produced gangster drama 'Power,' but as we've come to expect from the cable network, Starz isn't waiting very long to double down. Following a modest premiere, Starz has officially greenlit 'Power' for a second season to air in 2015, and with an expanded order at that.
If there was one thing last week's box office winner, Disney's revisionist tale 'Maleficent,' was missing, it was rap stars. There's not a single rapper in the entire film, it's all just Elle Fanning and Angelina Jolie and wood nymphs and spinning needles and such. No Ice Cube. No Ice-T. No Eminem. And this injustice will not stand -- because 50 Cent is out to correct it with his new feature film, 'Malefiftycent.'
Months ago we heard that Starz and rapper Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson had begun development of vague new criminal drama 'Power,' said to follow a “Gotham nightclub owner who skirts the line between legitimacy and criminality.” Starz has now officially picked up the drama to series with Jackson producing, but what new details have been revealed? And will 50 Cent end up starring in the show?
Starz is certainly looking to pick up new dramas, what with the earlier cancellation of 'Boss,' and the upcoming final run of 'Spartacus: War of the Damned,' even 'Magic City' having a somewhat tepid reception. For its latest effort Starz has partnered with rapper and occasional actor 50 Cent for 'Power,' which might have one of the vaguest titles and premises we've ever heard. Get the big (little) scoop inside!
You've probably never heard of 'Fire With Fire,' and that's because we hadn't either, until just now when someone apparently pulled the mangled remains of a trailer out of some garbage can and said, "Here, internet, you take this. You take it and you cherish it." That person was most likely a hobo, but who's to say?
50 'Curtis Jackson' Cent is the latest rapper who thinks his talent for smackin' hos and poppin' bottles is a sure fire way into the world of acting and Hollywood. So far Two Quarters has already managed to make and star in a handful of films (all of them terrible) and now he's starring in a new police drama alongside Robert DeNiro and Forest Whitaker.
