Whitaker, 50 Cent Attached to Another Jekyll

Not to be confused with this project, Abel Ferrara is also re-imagining Robert Louis Stevenson’s “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” as a contemporized film titled Jekyll and Hyde.

Forest Whitaker and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson are attached to play the lead roles in the classic tale about a doctor who invents a potion that unleashes his violent alter ego.

The project starts filming in late summer.
