*50 Cent had to adjust the title of his upcoming movie, “Things Fall Apart,” due to a protest from Nigerian novelist Chinua Achebe, author of the iconic 1958 book of the same name.
The rapper’s film is about a football player who is diagnosed with cancer. Directed by Mario Van Peebles, the movie premiered at the Miami Film Festival in March and has been completely financed by the rapper.
Speaking to The Guardian he said: “It’s a project that I wrote, produced and financed myself” but will now require a new name after the author refused a $1 million offer to allow the movie to hold onto the title.
The movie has now been renamed “All Things Fall Apart.”
