50 Cent Attends Festival Screening of ‘All Things Fall Apart’

50 Cent

50 Cent shared his latest passion project All Things Fall Apart with a select audience during the 15th Annual Urban World Film Festival in New York City on Friday (Sept. 16). The inspirational drama, co-starring Ray Liotta, was renamed after a dispute with Chinua Achebe, author of Nigeria’s most famous English-language novel Things Fall Apart. Despite offering a reported $1 million to retain the name, Fifty’s bid was rejected.

The rapper-turned-actor lost 54 pounds to play cancer-stricken football player Deon Barnes in the Mario Van Peebles-directed film, which opens in theaters in early 2012.

“My motivation for the project was my best friend, Charles Pringle,” 50 previously told Rap-Up.com. “He lived across the street from me; he actually died of cancer.”

    I read that book before, it was really good. When I first heard the movie title, thats what I thought of.

    His inspiration behind the role is remarkable. I hope it acheives much success. 54 pounds, wow! Talk about dedication! He should really be proud of himself.

    Things fall apart novel by Chinua Achebe is a story of Africa heritage. it dispute greatly the idea that Africans were living on tree before the coming of the colonial masters. 50 cents All things fall bout is about a cancer victim. So the two stories are not the same. His offering of $1 million shows how much he values his new film. I wish him the best of luck.
