50 Cent has just signed on for yet another challenging movie role. The rapper-actor will play a 1980's-era pimp in the upcoming film, The Frozen Ground.

According to the Anchorage Daily News, Fif is set to star alongside Nicholas Cage, John Cusack and Vanessa Hudgens in the thriller, based on the true story of serial killer Robert Hansen, also known as the "Butcher Baker," who preyed on prostitutes and strippers in Alaska. Cusack plays Hansen in the movie, but specifics about 50's role are still a mystery because the film's producers have declined to reveal details about the character.

50 will also serve as an executive producer on the film.
