50 Cent Proud to be Vanessa Hudgens' (Movie) Pimp
There’s no doubt that 50 Cent can rap about his "P.I.M.P." status, and soon audiences will see him portray one on the big screen. In the thriller Frozen Ground, he’ll be pimping out none other than High School Musical starlet Vanessa Hudgens!
“I’ll be the best pimp she ever has,” 50 Cent joked with Celebuzz while discussing the film at the Motorola Mobility event in New York. “I play Vanessa’s pimp in the movie, and I’ve really been working on it. It was an interesting project and is based on a true story, so there was a lot of information I could use to build the character."
Frozen Ground is based on the true-life story of an Alaskan pimp turned serial killer named Robert “Butcher Baker” Hansen, who took the lives of over 20 prostitutes throughout the '70s and '80s. The film also stars Nicolas Cage and John Cusack.
Meanwhile, the 22-year-old actress recently chatted about the upcoming film, gushing about the cast. "It's an amazing cast. 50 Cent is going to be my pimp,” she laughed, adding “I feel like it’s going to be a challenge that’s unlike anything I’ve done before. I’ll be playing off of a true story and the person who went through all of this will be by my side.”
The film is scheduled for release in December 2012. Do you plan to see it? Sound off in the comments below, and because it just seems fitting, enjoy it with a soundtrack of 50's 'P.I.M.P' in the background:
