Hard work and dedication to his craft is paying off for 50 Cent.
It was just announced that Image Entertainment was so impressed with 50's film "All Things Fall Apart," that they have acquired the rights to it from Hannibal Pictures and will release it to theaters in early 2012.
Image obtained the rights just before the start of the Toronto International Film Festival according to the L.A. Times.
The plot of the film centers around a college athlete who is on his way to winning a Heisman Trophy when he's diagnosed with a tumor near his heart.
Fifty lost 80 pounds to accurately portray the role he has described as a "passion" project for him.
"I had to discipline myself not to actually have myself be in the physical state to convey the energy I felt,” told the Associated Press back in February.
The story is based on a real life friend of the rapper/actor.
