Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage will star in the movie detailing the police investigation of Hansen, who preyed on prostitutes and strippers in the 1970s and early '80s in Anchorage. Hansen confessed to killing 17 women; some he let loose in the Alaska wilderness and hunted.
Cage will play an Alaska State Trooper who investigated the murders. John Cusack will play Hansen, and Vanessa Hudgens, of "High School Musical" fame, will play a victim who escaped.

 50 Cent Lands Role As A Pimp In Serial Killer Movie That Also Stars Nicolas Cage & John Cusack
 
50 Cent has landed a significant role in the upcoming movie Frozen Ground.

The movie is based on real life serial killer Robert Hansen aka the "Butcher Baker." Between 1980-1983 Hansen kidnapped and raped at least 21 women before flying them out to a remote Alaskan location, where he would release, then hunt and kill them.

Initially it was announced that 50 would serve as one of the executive producers of the film, which is being produced by Emmett/Furla Films. Fif has also now landed a "substantial" role in the film as a pimp according to Emmett.

The director thought that there was a great role for him and I gave him the script,” Emmett told the Anchorage Daily News.

He’s basically moved a lot of tour dates and a bunch of stuff that he has on his calendar to be committed and up in Alaska."

Frozen Ground will also star John Cusack as Hansen. Vanessa Hudgens will play 17-year old would-be victim Cindy Paulson, who escaped from the killer. And Nicolas Cage is set to play the role of an Alaska State Trooper who tracks Hansen down with Paulson's help.

Shooting for the film starts October 10 in Anchorage with a $27 million budget. http://www.thisis50.com/profiles/blogs/50-cent-lands-role-as-a-pimp-in-serial-killer-movie-that-also
