Pic Preview: 50 Cent new movie “Things Fall Apart”

50 is starring as a fictional character Deon Barnes, a University of Michigan football player whose dreams of an NFL career are dashed after contracting terminal cancer. 50 Cent has been losing weight for a minute for the role. The film is directed by Mario Van Peebles. The movie received muted reviews last week at the Miami Film Festival. It will premiere at the Detroit Film Festival this weekend.

Barnes’ doctor is Goodfellas legend Ray Liotta, who plays the lead in the film.

The movie was shot in Grand Rapids, MI at a local community college and indoor soccer facility.
