Cage and 50 Do ‘The Dance’


Variety is reporting that Universal Pictures has set Nicolas Cage and 50 Cent to star in The Dance, a film based on the life of prison boxing coach Billy “The Kid” Roth.

The project is based on a 2003 documentary helmed by John Darling Haynes and produced by Eric Geadelmann centering on a one-time a successful prizefighter. Since his days as a boxer Roth has spent more than 40 years as a volunteer boxing coach in Louisiana state prisons.

Cage will play Roth, while 50 Cent will play an inmate the coach believes has the talent to be a contender — the only hindrance being that he’s serving a life sentence.

Neil Tolkin is penning the script.
