GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Rapper 50 Cent is returning to Grand Rapids, this time as co-star of a movie being filmed in Michigan's second-largest city.
Filming began Friday for "Caught in the Crossfire," which features 50 Cent (whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III), along with Adam Rodriguez ("CSI: Miami") and Chris Klein ("American Pie").
Rick Hert, film commissioner for the West Michigan Film Office, says the movie is being produced in conjunction with Michigan's tax incentives for film producers.
Hert says details about the film aren't being publicized yet. The Grand Rapids Press photographed Rodriguez outside a downtown tavern, but crew members declined to talk to the newspaper.
50 Cent has made past visits to Grand Rapids for a 2003 concert and a celebrity basketball game organized by boxer Floyd Mayweather.
