In da America

10.18.2004

Jim Sheridan is the Oscar-nominated director behind IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, MY LEFT FOOT and IN AMERICA. 50 Cent is the former crack dealer and current NYC-based rapper behind such hits as "How To Rob An Industry Nigga" and the succinctly titled "F*ck You". Believe it or not, these two will team for the Paramount action/adventure flick LOCKED AND LOADED. The project is described as a story of an inner-city drug dealer who tries to leave his life of crime behind to focus on a rap career. Apparently the film is trying to evoke the feel of GOODFELLAS, yet it's described as being an action/adventure movie. Now call me crazy but I would hardly describe GOODFELLAS as an action/adventure movie. But I digress... Despite the fact the film sounds a lot like 8 MILE, Eminem is also said to be participating along with frequent collaborator Dr. Dre. 50, the self-professed muthaf*ckin P-I-M-P, is signed to Em's record label Shady/Aftermath. Sheridan recently signed on to direct Tom Hanks in the remake of Akira Kurosawa's IKIRU for DreamWorks. It appears LOCKED will take priority though as filming is set for early next year. Paramount will release the film in conjunction with MTV Films.
