Robert De Niro To Get Acting Tips From 50 Cent

Saturday, March 26 by

Each film that Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson appears in is the equivalent of a master class in the field of acting, and also how to get with shorties in the club. Now, it looks lik the master is taking yet another pupil under his evidently bullet-proof wing, in Robert De Niro – whom he already worked with in Righteous Kill. Forest Whitaker is also “in talks,” so hopefully he will be able to learn at the feet of the master as well. The movie is called Freelancers, but unfortunately it isn’t about guys who write movie news articles at 2 o’clock in the morning. Here’s the disappointing plot synopsis:

“Jackson plays the son of a slain NYPD officer who, with his two best friends, joins the Police Academy. After graduating, he’ taken under the wing of his father’s former partner Captain Vic Sarcone (De Niro) in the ranks of Sarcone’s Street Vice Crime Task Force and he becomes part of Scarcone’s rogue task force.”

So it sounds like a little bit of The Untouchables, with a little, I dunno, Training Day or something mixed in. Hopefully this means De Niro will finally learn a thing or two about acting, and we can see what he’s really capable of. Do you think they can do another Fockers movie after this? (via Deadline)
