Did 50 Steal The Idea For His Upcoming Starz Superhero Drama “Tomorrow, Today”???
While 50 Cent may be known for calling out other people’s problems via social media, it looks like he may have some problems of his own. According to TMZ and a variety of other media outlets, the 41-year-old rapper and actor has been threatened with a lawsuit, due to supposedly stealing a publishing company’s idea from one of their fiction books for his upcoming superhero series.
Back in August of this year, 50 Cent–along with Starz, announced that a new superhero series, titled “Tomorrow, Today” was in the works. The show’s plot was going to be centered around a veteran who becomes an unwilling experiment for a wicked doctor. Although the show hasn’t officially began production just yet, it was definitely a concrete idea.
However, let’s just say, 50’s superhero project may be put on halt for a little while. TMZ reported that the Power star was hit with a legal letter from JourStarr Publications, stating that 50’s superhero series is a direct duplicate of their fiction book, Othello Greene: The Story Begins, written by Anthony Baltimore.
Although he’s been accused of these allegations, 50 claims that the superhero show’s plot is based on a screenplay he previously wrote. JourStarr Publications’ publisher, Justin Daugherty, rules against that and still believes that the G-Unit leader purposely took the idea from their book.
Surprisingly, 50–nor Starz, have commented on this matter. Whether these allegations are true of false, we’re hoping all works out well between the three parties involved.
