When you do a quick overview of the films being released this month, five of them are the frontrunners to win Best Picture at the Oscars 2014.

Jessy Terrero to direct 50 Cent in 'The Pursuit'

Los Angeles, CA – October 4, 2011 – It was announced today that Emmett / Furla Films and Cheetah Vision Films are partnering to produce the action thriller “The Pursuit,” which will star Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. The announcement was made today by Randall Emmett, who co-runs Cheetah Vision with Jackson and is partnered with George Furla in Emmett / Furla Films.
Director Jessy Terrero
(“Soul Plane” “Gun”) has signed a three picture directing deal with the producers, which will begin with him directing “The Pursuit.”
Principle photography is slated to begin February 15th 2012 in Louisiana. The film will be distributed by Lionsgate through Cheetah Vision’s existing 10 picture output deal with the leading independent studio.

In “The Pursuit” a cop and criminal inadvertently team up to track down an escaped bank robber as each has his own personal vendetta against the man.  Meanwhile, a determined US Marshall hunts the men to prevent them from killing the convict and instead ensure that he is brought to justice the proper way.
The screenplay is written by Matt Johnson (“Into the Blue,” “Torque,” the upcoming “Afterburn”). Producers are Randall Emmett, George Furla and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. Additional casting announcements will be made in the coming weeks.

With nine films in production this year alone, Emmett / Furla Films, the Los Angeles based film production and financing company, has quickly emerged as one of the industry’s most prolific production companies with the capacity to develop, package, finance and produce a broad array of films for wide theatrical release.
Emmett / Furla is currently in pre-production on “Broken City” starring Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe and “Frozen Ground” starring John Cusak, Nicolas Cage and Vanessa Hudgens. Both films will begin shooting this fall. The company also has several major films currently in post production including the Stephen Frears directed comedy “Lay the Favorite” starring Bruce Willis, Catherine Zeta Jones, Rebecca Hall and Vince Vaughn; the drama “Fire with Fire” starring Josh Duhamel, Bruce Willis and Rosario Dawson; the action / thriller “Freelancers” starring Robert DeNiro, Forest Whitaker and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson; and the mystery crime thriller “End of Watch” starring Jake Gyllanhall and Anna Kendrick.
Emmett / Furla Films recently announced a new $250 million film fund with Envision Entertainment to finance a new slate of high-end, star-driven commercial feature films.

Adam Rodriguez gets 'Caught' with 50 Cents

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is starring with Chris Klein, Adam Rodriguez and Richard T. Jones in Caught in the Crossfire,” a police corruption drama. Newcomer Brian Miller wrote the script and is directing.

Lensing is just getting underway in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Jackson’s Cheetah Vision Films partner Randall Emmett is producing with R.D. Miller, who raised the equity to finance the film through his company Miller and Miller Films. Jackson is executive producer with Chris Lighty and Tim Roth.

The drama concerns two homicide detectives who find themselves caught in the crossfire of a gang-related homicide and a group of dirty cops. Jackson plays a gang-banger who becomes a reluctant informant.

Miller went to film school in Grand Rapids and is making his directing debut on “Crossfire.”

Jackson and Emmett launched Cheetah Vision at Sundance. Aside from “Crossfire,” they are producing “Jekyll and Hyde,” the Abel Ferrara-directed retelling of the classic story that will star Jackson and Forest Whitaker. They are also planning another untitled drama they will self-finance as a star vehicle for Jackson, with Benny Boom (“Next Day Air”) directing. Production will begin in October.
