50 Cent's Movie Set Shutdown Over Union Beef

Image50 Cent and Samuel L Jackson's Home Of The Brave movie set was shut down on Sunday (March 26), causing production of the film to come to an abrupt stop.

According to KXLY.com, a labor disagreement between the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Union and North by Northwest Productions caused production crews from both parties to pack up and move out of the area.

Union business manager David Robinson divulged that the film's production has been halted indefinitely and it is still uncertain if the movie will be shot at the Spokane, Washington location.

As SOHH previously reported, Home Of The Brave centers on three soldiers who struggle to readapt to everyday life following a long tour in Iraq. 50 was reportedly set to play one of the soldiers, while Samuel Jackson plays a doctor who also struggles with his return to normalcy after the war.

Jessica Biel (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Eva Mendes (Hitch) and Christina Ricci (Monster) also star in the film.

In related news, 50 Cent could be soon collaborating with Michael Jackson. G-Unit affiliate DJ Whoo Kid recently revealed that he dined with the "King of Pop" and he expressed interest in working with 50 and Kanye West.
