A man has died after being shot following a US screening of the controversial 50 CENT movie GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN'.

SHELTON FLOWERS, 30, was one of three men involved in a toilet bust-up immediately after the 50 Cent biopic finished showing at a cinema in Homestead, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday (09NOV05).

Police have yet to establish a direct link between Flowers' murder and the film, directed by Jim Sheridan. No arrests have been made.

The cinema in question has now stopped showing Get Rich Or Die Tryin'.

Spokesman JOHN McCAULEY says, "We're unclear whether there is a direct connection."
