The rapper will appear alongside Mickey Rourke and Jason Statham in the movie, which is called ‘13’ and will be directed by Gela Babluani.

The story is about a man who steals a mysterious package that promises to pay out a fortune, reports Variety.

The film is set to begin shooting on November 17 in New York City.
