50 Cent to play pimp in Alaska serial killer movie

Rapper 50 Cent will play a pimp in a movie about Alaska’s infamous serial killer, Robert Hansen.

The rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, will spend two weeks in Anchorage filming his role in the movie, “Frozen Ground,” which begins filming in October, reports the Anchorage Daily News.
The movie is based on the true story of serial killer Robert Hansen, who preyed on prostitutes and strippers in the 1970s and early ’80s in Anchorage. Hansen confessed to killing 17 women; some he let loose in the Alaska wilderness and hunted.
The movie also stars Nicolas Cage as an Alaska State Trooper investigating the case. John Cusack plays Hansen while Vanessa Hudgens will portray an escaped victim.
50 Cent will appear in the drama “All Things Fall Apart” –- about a football player stricken with cancer — opening in January.
