New York rapper 50 Cent is getting the cameras rolling. The STARZ executive has announced the start of production for his new “Power Book III: Raising Kanan” series.
Big Facts: This week, Fif hit up his social media pages to reveal a New York City park pic and alert followers filming has begun.
High-Key Details: Last week, 50 shared fresh shots of his “Power Book III: Raising Kanan” cast and said he wanted nothing but perfection for the series.
Wait, There’s More: In mid-February 2020, 50 shared some key details on the casting process for his upcoming series.
Before You Go: Speculation recently developed on actor Omar Epp joining the spin-off series.
While no specific details of Epps’ role are known, the House vet is playing a major figure in the Power cannon, I hear. Being that Raising Kanan is the only Power spinoff to take place in the past, it is pretty clear whoever the Brooklyn-born Epps is portraying will have reach in the mainly New York-set world of the franchise. Reach that could stretch, one way or another, to the Mary J. Blige-led and Method Man, Michael Rainey Jr., Shane Johnson and Naturi Naughton starring Power Book II: Ghost, the Larenz Tate-led Power Book IV: Influence and the now L.A.-based Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) driven Power Book V: Force.
