Based on a few stills, for some reason I didn’t connect that the new firefighter drama Fire with Fire was produced by 50 Cent and his Cheetah Vision Films. If you’re not familiar, they’ve given us the shoddy-looking, low-budget dramas like Freelancers and Setup, which somehow attract stars like Robert De Niro and Bruce Willis. This latest project, which sees a re-team with the latter star, also features Josh Duhamel, Rosario Dawson, Vinnie Jones, Vincent D’Onofrio and Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson.
We’ve got the first trailer for the film today, which is directed by frequent TV helmer David Barrett (The Mentalist, Castle, V), and it looks like another flabbergasting project with little appeal. I’d actually much rather see a documentary about how 50 Cent can get these projects made, what attracts the stars and the end goal, which seems to be strictly monetary. Check out the peek below for the revenge thriller, wich sees a firefighting Duhamel be forced into witness protection after seeing a gangland murder.
Update: Removed at the request of the studio.
Fire with Fire is expected to hit theaters in September and I wish them the best of luck possibly trying to get that to occur. [Shadow and Act]
