‘Pursuit’ starring 50 Cent sets start date

Emmett/Furla, Cheetah Vision partner for action thriller

Emmett/Furla Films and Cheetah Vision Films are running after “The Pursuit,” partnering to produce the action thriller starring Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.

Project was announced Tuesday by Randall Emmett, who co-runs Cheetah Vision with Jackson and is partnered with George Furla in Emmett/Furla Films. Emmett, Furla and Jackson are producing.

Shooting has been set to start Feb. 15 in Louisiana. Jessy Terrero (“Soul Plane”) will direct as part of a three-picture directing deal with the producers.

“The Pursuit” will be distributed by Lionsgate through Cheetah Vision’s 10-picture output deal.

Story centers on a cop and criminal inadvertently teaming up to track down an escaped bank robber while a determined U.S. Marshal hunts the men to prevent them from killing the convict. Matt Johnson (“Into the Blue”) wrote the screenplay.

Emmett/Furla is currently in pre-production on “Broken City” starring Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe and “Frozen Ground” starring John Cusack, Nicolas Cage and Vanessa Hudgens. Both films will begin shooting this fall. The company is in post production on “Lay the Favorite,” Fire with Fire,” “Freelancers” and “End of Watch.”

Emmett/Furla announced last month a $250 million film fund with Envision Entertainment to finance a new slate of star-driven commercial feature films.

Image Entertainment acquired rights to football drama “All Things Fall Apart,” starring Jackson, Ray Liotta, Mario Van Peebles and Lynn Whitfield, with Van Peebles directing. “All Things Fall Apart,” produced by Jackson and Emmett, is slated for an early 2012 theatrical release.
