50 Cent near ‘Spectacular’

Rapper in talks to join Leonard's 'Regret'

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is negotiating, and Danny Huston, John Ortiz and Kelli Garner are set to star, in “Spectacular Regret.”

The independently financed drama was scripted by Joshua Leonard, who will make his dramatic feature debut as director.

Financed through private equity, the film will shoot in July in L.A. Peter Sterling and Mary Pat Bentel are producing and Dolly Hall is exec producer.

Jackson will play a death row inmate whose imminent execution has made him a cause celebre. The drama interconnects with four Angelenos struggling to overcome past events.

Leonard is an actor who has co-directed the docu “Beautiful Losers” and helmed short “The Youth in Us.” He also lugged around a camera as one of the stars of “The Blair Witch Project.”
