On Friday it was announced by The Hollywood Reporter that G-Unit Film & Televison (owned by rapper 50 cent) is partnering with horror icon Eli Roth’s production company, Arts District Entertainment. That in addition to James Frey at 3BlackDot independent film studio, in order to create 3 horror movies.
Eli Roth is most widely known for his performance as Sgt. Donny Donowitz in the Tarantino film “Inglorious Basterds”, though in the realm of Horror, Roth is most well known for producing and direction movies such as Cabin Fever, Hemlock Grove and most famously Hostel. 3Black Dot is known as the co-financier and co-producer of Queen & Slim.
Roth was quoted as saying this on the subject:
“Both 50 and James (Frey) have never shied away from controversial, boundary-pushing material and have made massive global cultural impacts from their raw creative energy, We want to bring that same fun and danger to this new fantastic slate of elevated scary films. We want to make the movies others are too afraid to make.”
50 cent also had this to say:
“Eli, James, Roger, Michael, and 3BlackDot will be great partners in G-Unit Film and Television’s takeover of the horror genre. I can’t wait to show the world what we’re building,”
The idea comes from Roth, Frey and 50-Cent themselves with their respective production companies handling the producing duties. No further information about the projects have been given as of yet.
