Bugsy’s movie, Streets of Blood with Val Kilmer won’t see a big screen besides the one in the living room. Flip the switch for more
We have just confirmed with movie studio Anchor Bay that they have bought the outright film distribution rights to 50 Cent’s new movie Streets of Blood. Those in the industry know though that Anchor Bay buys and distributes movies…straight to video. Yes, that’s right. WoooHa can confirm that Streets of Blood is going straight to video and will be available in stores July 28, 2009.
We have been covering Streets of Blood for sometime now. We were the first to break their sales trailer that the producers were pitching to studios months ago. But clearly no theatrical studios were interested. For those 50 fans, you might remember that this is the movie where 50 and co-star Val Kilmer formed a strong friendship…to the point that Val bought 50 a classic car.
Anyways, there you have it. All in all it’s not a good week for 50 Cent news. Earlier this week, sales numbers for his game “Blood on the Sand” were released and they were VERY VERY low and now this news about his movie going straight to DVD. The good news though is that 50 has a bunch of other movie projects coming soon including Twelve and a bunch of other projects in the works. Let’s just hope they hit theaters this time though.
Bugsy knows that all his business ventures aren’t always going to work out. He is not worried about it though. He’s wrapping up the movie Twelve withZoe Kravitz. We pretty sure that movie will hit the big screen.
