50 Cent keeps talking Robert De Niro into starring in his movies. They acted together in "Righteous Kill" back in 2008 and now they've re-teamed for "Freelancers" crime thriller, which co-stars Forest Whitaker. Check out the trailer for their new film below.
In the movie, 50 Cent plays the son of a slain NYPD officer who, with his two best friends, joins the Police Academy. After graduating, he's taken under the wing of his father's former partner Captain Vic Sarcone (De Niro) and becomes part of Sarcone's rogue task force.
Jessy Terrero, who directed "Soul Plane" and 50 Cent's "Gun," helmed "Freelancers," which will be going straight to DVD.
Robert DeNiro and Forset Whitaker in this movie? Come on, seriously.
I mean DeNiro has gone from The Godfather Part II to Heat and now this.
Also Whitaker has gone from Last King Of Scotland to this.
These guys are great actors.
50 Cent? I understand why he is in this movie.
I think DeNiro should do more roles that show he's still in the game instead of doing it for a quick paycheck.
Also Forset should do another violent dicitor movie to prove his acting skills.
Still these are the guys who are now in direct to DVD movies:
Cuba Gooding Jr.
Bruce Willis (Setup was his first Direct To DVD which starred also 50 Cent and Ryan Phillipe, hopefully it's his last)
Does anyone know more great actors from the 80's, 90's or 00's who are now in direct to DVD movies.

"I think DeNiro should do more roles that show he's still in the game instead of doing it for a quick paycheck."
How about this: you let Robert DeNiro run HIS life the way he sees fit, and he'll let you run your sh*tty life the way YOU see fit, because to be honest, all these people who daily say "oh so and so actor needs to do this" sound like f*cking children telling mommy and daddy what to do, and to whit, Robert DeNiro and all the other actors don't owe you or me or anyone sh*t and we're not entitled to sh*t either. So let the man do what the f*ck he wants, ok?
