50 Cent recently revealed that he will play a drug dealer in the upcoming Robert De Niro/Al Pacino film Righteous Kill.

"I'm not even sure they know yet," 50 told New York's Daily News. Coincidentally, the G-Unit boss is also attached to another De Niro movie titled New Orleans, where both 50 and De Niro play cops.

Righteous Kill will begin production on Augusts 6 in Connecticut and some parts of the flick will be shot in Manhattan. The movie is expected to hit theatre in 2008.
