50 Cent & G-Unit Companies Sign With APA for Film & Touring
Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson is now represented by APA for film, television and touring, as part of a deal made in June with Jackson's G-Unit production and touring companies.
Jackson has recently co-starred in the Jake Gyllenhaal-starring Southpaw and Spy, opposite Melissa McCarthy and Jude Law. Some of his past credits include the semi-autobiographical Get Rich or Die Tryin'; the Golden Globe nominated Home Of The Brave; and Righteous Kill, opposite Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro, among others.
He also co‐stars, serves as co-creator and executive produces the STARZ network drama Power with his G-Unit Film & Television, Inc.
Since breaking out with his 2003 debut album, Get Rich or Die Tryin', Jackson has grown his business with extensions into music, artist management, television, motion pictures, footwear, apparel, fragrance, liquor, video games, publishing, headphones and health drinks.
Jackson filed for bankruptcy in July after a New York City court ordered him to pay $7 million to a woman who claimed he released a sex tape she made with a boyfriend with his own crude narration as part of a beef with Rick Ross.
