'Half Past Dead' will also star Kurupt...

Rapper JA RULE is reportedly being lined up to feature in the new movie ‘HALF PAST DEAD’.

According to press reports, the star will appear in the film, which will also feature fellow rapper Kurupt, alongside Steven Seagal and Morris Chestnut.

The movie is said to be based on a criminal who attempts to get inside a prison to find a secret fortune.

Ja Rule recently topped the US charts with his album ‘Pain Is Love’. However, he recently told MTV news he was already thinking about the follow-up release, which is likely to be titled ‘The Last Temptation’.

He said: “Ain’t no more two, three years till your next album. One a year, two a year – drop them or get dropped off. That’s the game… It’s crazy, but since my first album, I knew the title of my next five albums. I had this whole shit mapped out how I want to do my albums.”
