Emmett/Furla Films and Cheetah Vision Films have partnered with Georgia-based entrepreneur Richard Jackson to produce and co-finance three to five pictures per year.

Jackson has formed Action Jackson Films and kicks off the partnership with a commitment to fully fund "The Gun," a drama scripted by Cheetah Vision partner Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson (no relation), who will star with Val Kilmer. Jesse Terro is set to direct the picture, which begins production next month.
