50 Cent launched his film company Cheetah Vision in 2009 and had a number of very successful straight to DVD releases, which has led Grindstone/Lionsgate to sign 50’s Cheetah Vision via Emmett/Furla to a new 10-film deal.
The first movie expected to be produced through the new arrangement is Empire State, which will star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Cheetah Vision x Emmett/Furla is also in the midst of filming the Sylvester Stallone/Arnold Schwarzenegger co-starred flick, The Tombs.
50 partners and Emmett/Furla’s CEO’s gave a statement on the new deal, as they said:
“We have partnered with the Lionsgate family on films for more than 10 years, and we’re thrilled to see our partnership continue to grow with their success.”
