Rap star 50 Cent has announced plans to begin producing films with the launch of his latest venture, a film production company called Cheetah Vision.

The G-Unit leader has already begun laying groundwork for his film projects.

50 said Cheetah Vision had already bought eight scripts. "They are all different types of movies that I bought the rights to, and we're developing projects. You will see different things from me in the future," he said. (Reuters)

Fif is currently prepping the company's first production with Nicolas Cage and is not concerned over the economy's current financial state.

The first to be produced would be The Dance. "He plays the founder of a boxing program, and I play a fighter who goes to state prison," 50 said. "I don't think [the economy] will affect me as much as it will the other people that are out there because I'm not afraid to finance some of these things myself if I have to." (BBC)

50 recently appeared at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

Vitamin Water and 50 Cent House: Tucked away in a private mansion will be screenings, yoga sessions with Russell Simmons, workouts with 50 Cent, food by STK and spa treatments by Green Valley Spa. Stop by for a private performance by 50 Cent or Sunday football with Kim Kardashian. (People)
