50 Cent’s Football-and-Cancer Movie Runs Into Legal Trouble

By

Things Fall Apart, the title for Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson's much-anticipated (at least by Vulture) football drama, also happens to be the title of a seminal 1958 novel by Nigerian author Chinua Achebe. You, perhaps, knew this; 50, it turns out, did not. Achebe took legal action against Fiddy, who, after offering $1 million to keep the title, was forced to change the name. His self-written, self-financed opus will now be known as All Things Fall Apart, which is fine by Vulture, as long as 50 doesn't reedit the trailer. It is a true masterpiece. [Guardian UK]
