Nobody was really accusing 50 Cent of being a slacker, but this should eliminate all doubt for good: Curtis Jackson, better known as 50 Cent, just inked in a 10 film deal with Lionsgate and Grindstone studios, according to AllHipHop.com.  

50's Cheetah Vision Film Company, which was co-founded by Randall Emmett in 2009, arranged the deal after previously signing a $200 million, 10 film deal with Grindstone and Lionsgate that produced a number of successful films such as "Setup" starring Bruce Willis, Ryan Phillippe and 50 Cent, as well as "Freelancers" starring Robert DeNiro and Forrest Whitaker.

Currently, Cheetah Vision is working on is an action thriller called "The Tombs" starring action icons Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and, yes, 50 Cent.  It's scheduled for a 2013 release date.
