50 Cent reveals Danny Dyer inspiration

Rapper appears in new film with British actor

50 Cent has revealed how the involvement of British actor Danny Dyer helped convince him to sign up to be in new film ‘Dead Man Running’.

The rapper plays a loan shark in the Alex De Rakoff-directed film, with his character threatening the man Dyer is portraying to come up with some cash in 24 hours.

“What made me secure about going into the project was I’d watched those other actors like Danny,” he told BBC Newsbeat. “I watched ‘Layer Cake’, I watched UK films while I was travelling. I knew I would be in a secure space surrounded by this sort of cast.”

‘Dead Man Running’ is set for release on October 30 in the UK.
