Rapper 50 Cent is expanding his multimedia empire to include a film production company.
50 Cent - real name Curtis Jackson - has launched moviemaking firm Cheetah Vision and is busily promoting the new venture at top U.S. independent film festival Sundance.
Cheetah Vision has already secured the movie rights to eight scripts including The Dance, which will co-starring himself and actor Nicolas Cage.
Jackson, who also owns a record label and a clothing line, is convinced his film corporation will be a hit in spite of the current economic downturn - because he will finance the firm himself to ensure its success.
He says, "I don't think it will affect me (the recession) as much as it will the other people that are out there because I'm not afraid to finance some of these things myself if I have to."
And the star is keen to repay fans hit hard by the economic crisis - by giving away his directing debut Before I Self Destruct with his forthcoming album of the same name, due in March (09).
The movie, which he also wrote and produced, tells the story of an inner city youth who takes up crime to support his younger brother after their mother is shot.

Without question I believe that 50 will have a successful film company. He appears to be a person whom once has committed themselves to follow through with a task approaches it with great tenacity and strategic resolve. As I have stated in the following: I have seen 50’s reality show and blur bits of Diddy on the Rachel Ray show stating that there should be a “Black Bond!” I agree with Diddy. There should be a “Black Bond!” I do not however, feel it is Diddy. I Think without question that 50 is the “Black James Bond of the millennium!” 50 has incredible presences that radiates sophistication and integrity. I am not saying that Diddy does not have integrity but his presences of sophistication appears to be forced. Where 50’s just is. 50 has an edge of toughness which transcends his infamous history. 50 balances acute detail when managing human faux-pa's utilizing razor edge accuracy and well thought out precision with the decisions he has made on his reality show. Those in the public eye need to truly realize they are in the public eye and what we see is not always what they may truly think is being perceived by the public because they are around throngs of “ego pleasers” at the cost of a true representation or mirror (if you will) being held to their faces showing them what the public who are not invested in them see. That being said, I wish I knew who to contact to share my “two cents” about 50 Cent. He truly embodies the presences of a “Black James Bond” of the millennium!
