50 Cent Options Saints Row Movie Rights

Rather than adapt his own THQ game into a film, 50 Cent is first looking to develop the publisher's Saints Row franchise into a movie.

The rapper announced that he was optioning the rights to create a Saints Row movie during a conference call earlier today. nope "With my relationship with THQ, they'll actually see me develop Saint's Row into an actual screeplay and into a film project," said Mr. Cent, according to Kotaku.

"I'm optioning the rights for that right now, so they'll see that before they see me do it from my own perspective for my game," he added.
