Robert De Niro, Forest Whitaker and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson made a movie about ethically questionable cops that is probably going straight-to-DVD. And now we know what it looks like thanks to a very NSFW trailer.
In “Freelancers,” the non-Oscar winning actor plays the son of a slain cop who becomes a police officer himself. He’s then taken under the wing of the actor who won Oscars for “The Godfather Part II” and “Raging Bull,” and becomes the partner of the actor who won an Oscar for “The Last King Of Scotland.”
The movie looks gritty, low budget and kind of excellent (in a very bad sort of way.)
The end of the trailer asks us to “look for it” on DVD and Blu-Ray, but does not specify a time. I’ve asked Grindstone Entertainment for more information on this and will update if I hear back.
Reportedly, the film was made as part of 50 Cent’s $200 million, 10-picture deal with Lionsgate.As part of this deal, the rapper has already turned out other straight-to-DVD movies with famous people (“Setup” with Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe, for example.)
The trailer is NSFW for language and violence throughout, as well as partial nudity at the 38 second mark. But when you are prepared both physically and mentally, watch the trailer here.
