New York rapper 50 Cent is heading back to Hollywood. The hip-hop veteran has announced his recently released Den of Thieves movie is a go for a much-needed sequel.
Fif went to Instagram Tuesday (February 13) to break the huge news to his 17.2 million followers.
The film’s main star Gerard Butler is expected to return for Den of Thieves 2.
Heist thriller “Den of Thieves” is getting a sequel, with actor Gerard Butler and director Christian Gudegast on board to return. Mark Canton and Tucker Tooley will again produce, along with Butler and Alan Siegel with their G-Base company, and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson with his production company G-Unit Film & Television.

Despite some lackluster reviews, 50’s movie has already made nearly $60 million since hitting theaters.
The original Den of Thieves over-performed at the box office when it was released last month. The film, which took Tooley and Canton about 15 years to bring to the screen, has yet to finish out its international run (it has about 35 markets yet to go). Worldwide, the film has grossed $57M so far. (Deadline)
Last month, 50 Cent relied on his IG page to prove Den of Thieves had put up huge box office numbers.
