50 Cent has landed a significant role in the upcoming movie Frozen Ground.
The movie is based on real life serial killer Robert Hansen aka the "Butcher Baker." Between 1980-1983 Hansen kidnapped and raped at least 21 women before flying them out to a remote Alaskan location, where he would release, then hunt and kill them.
Initially it was announced that 50 would serve as one of the executive producers of the film, which is being produced by Emmett/Furla Films. Fif has also now landed a "substantial" role in the film as a pimp according to Emmett.
“The director thought that there was a great role for him and I gave him the script,” Emmett told the Anchorage Daily News.
“He’s basically moved a lot of tour dates and a bunch of stuff that he has on his calendar to be committed and up in Alaska."
Frozen Ground will also star John Cusack as Hansen. Vanessa Hudgens will play 17-year old would-be victim Cindy Paulson, who escaped from the killer. And Nicolas Cage is set to play the role of an Alaska State Trooper who tracks Hansen down with Paulson's help.
Shooting for the film starts October 10 in Anchorage with a $27 million budget.
