The new hip-hop and rap movie "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" based on the life of 50 Cent has been pulled from a Homestead, Pa., theater where a man was fatally shot even though officials said they do not know whether the film was a factor in the slaying.
Loews Corp. decided to stop showing the rapper's bullet-ridden bio while the investigation is going on, said John McCauley, the company's vice president of marketing. "We're unclear whether there is a direct connection," McCauley said.
He said the company is doing all it can to make sure patrons are safe at the 22-screen multiplex in a popular entertainment-and-shopping complex just east of Pittsburgh.
Shelton Flowers, 30, had just watched the rapper's movie Wednesday when he got into a confrontation with three men in the bathroom. A fight ensued and spilled out into the concessions area, where Flowers was shot, police said. Authorities were looking for witnesses, and no suspects were immediately arrested.
