50 Cent’s ‘Things Fall Apart’ trailer released online – video

Rapper underwent dramatic weight loss for film part

The trailer for 50 Cent‘s new film Things Fall Apart has been posted online – scroll down and click below to watch it.

The rapper – real name Curtis Jackson – lost a huge amount of weight to play the role of a star high-school footballer who is diagnosed with cancer.

He has stated that he normally weighs 214 pounds and is often photographed flaunting his muscles. Yet after nine weeks on a liquid diet last year, he went down to just 160 pounds.

Jackson wrote, produced and financed the film himself. It has been directed by Mario Van Peebles and is expected to be released later this year.
