    It's "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" meets "Are you talkin' to me?" Robert De Niro and 50 Cent are in final negotations to star as cop partners in New Orleans, a police thriller set in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

    The film tells the story of a cop (De Niro) who thinks his partner is killed in the hurricane, only to discover that he was actually shot to death. With his new partner (50 Cent) in tow, the cop sets out to learn the truth about his old partner's death, uncovering a web of police corruption in the process.

    Originally titled Microwave Park, the film was to be set in Los Angeles, but was moved to New Orleans so the Hurricane Katrina disaster could be incorporated into the storyline. Director Tim Hunter is tentatively scheduled to begin shooting in New Orleans in February.

    This would be Fiddy's third film role, after making his debut last year in Get Rich or Die Tryin', a film loosely based on his days in New York as a small-time drug dealer and aspiring rapper. He also appears in the Iraq-themed film Home of the Brave, which is due out in January.
