(News) Joel Schumacher's "Twelve" has a set cast.
It seems as though Joel Schumacher is coming out with another movie soon called "twelve". The cast has been set, mostly good, and one really bad choice.
"Gaumont, Radar Pictures and Original Media have set a Joel Schumacher-directed adaptation of the Nick McDonell novel "Twelve."
Pic will star Chace Crawford, Emma Roberts, Rory Culkin, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Ellen Barkin and Kiefer Sutherland.
Production begins April 20 in New York. Jordan Melamed wrote the script.
In 2002, then 17-year-old McDonell wrote a novel that starkly depicted teenage drug use and decadence on the Upper East Side.
Story follows a high school dropout-turned-drug dealer. His lucrative life sours when the dealer's cousin is brutally murdered on an East Harlem playground and his best friend is arrested for the crime."
It's no secret that I down right loathe 50 Cent. The fact that he keeps getting roles is beyond me. He became especially laughable after his role in "Righteous Kill". Remember him? How could you not? He was the cliche gangster/club owner that had his own music actually playing in the club sound system; I'm not kidding. Schumacher's career is very hit or miss at this point. He's done a few memorable hits but he's done more bombs too. We'll see how this turns out.
