50 Cent is getting in the superhero game by developing a live-action movie based on DC Comics’ Xerø.
The film follows a Black government assassin who goes invisible by disguising himself as a white man to blend into the exotic elite, and 50 has plans to turn Xerø into a franchise.
“There’s no one better than Christopher Priest to bring G-Unit Film & Television into the world of comic book superheroes,” 50 Cent said. “Watch as we build Xerø into a franchise alongside Christopher and Color Farm Media. I can’t wait for the world to meet Trane Walker in an all new way.”
Series creator Christopher Priest revealed his excitement about working with 50 Cent.
“Xerø depicts a slow-moving car wreck at the intersection of race and class,” he explained. “The commonality of struggle represented by the life experiences of Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson, G-Unit Film & Television and Color Farm assure a broad depth of first-hand appreciation for that delicate balance. It’s exciting to be working together to create this new world.”
Xerø originally belonged to DC Comics but Priest has the rights to the series.
