The action-packed film "Freelancers," starring Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and Academy Award winning actors Forest Whitaker and Robert De Niro, premieres on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand August 21 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment:
The brotherhood between cops is sacred, but it's not stronger than the bond between a father and son, especially when it's a matter of justice. From a producer of "16 Blocks" and "Righteous Kill" comes the police thriller "Freelancers," premiering on Blu-ray Disc, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand on August 21, 2012. The film will also be available in theaters for a limited release on August 10, 2012. Multi-platinum recording artist and rising Hollywood film star Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson ("Get Rich or Die Tryin'") adds to his growing resume as an actor with his portrayal of Malo, the son of a slain NYPD officer who joins the force only to discover the villainous story behind his father's death.
Jackson is surrounded by an all-star supporting cast that includes two-time Academy Award winner Robert De Niro ("Raging Bull," "The Godfather Part II") and Best Actor winner Forest Whitaker ("The Last King of Scotland"), who head up the band of rogue New York City cops that recruit Jackson and his partners into their corrupt ranks. The film also features two-time Emmy Award winner Dana Delaney (TV's "China Beach").
The "Freelancers" Blu-ray Disc and DVD special features include audio commentary from director Jessy Terrero and actor Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson as well as extended interviews and behind-the-scenes interviews with the filmmakers and cast. The "Freelancers" Blu-ray Disc and DVD are each housed in limited edition collectible packaging and will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
The son of a slain NYPD officer joins the force, where he falls in with his father's former partner and a team of rogue "Gotham cops." His new boss, Sarcone (De Niro), will see if he has what it takes to be rogue through many trials and tribulations of loyalty, trust and respect. However, when the truth about his father's death is revealed, revenge takes over and he won't stop until justice has been truly served.
