According to The Hollywood Reporter, Phase 4 Films purchased the North American rights to Dead Man Running. The film stars rapper-actor Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson.

Tamer Hassan, Danny Dyer, Brenda Blethyn and Monet Mazur are also in this film. It centers around an ex-con (Hassan) who is given 24 hours to pay back a loan shark (Jackson).

Alex De Rakoff (The Calcium Kid) directed this project.

"Dead Man Running is a heart-pounding, fast-paced adrenaline rush with 50 Cent, who once again proves how multitalented he is, adept in crossing over from music to movies," stated Phase 4 president and CEO Berry Meyerowitz.

Phase 4 hopes to release the film this year.
