Eminem Heading Back To The Big Screen
The rapper is close to signing on to star in a crime thriller…
Eminem is considering a return to acting, nine years after his film debut in 8 Mile.
The Love The Way You Lie rapper is set to star in Random Acts Of Violence, a crime thriller about an ex-con who has pressure from both sides – his criminal friends want him to return to crime while the FBI wants to recruit him to bring down his former gang. Eminem would play the lead role.
He would also play a part in producing the film, which has been in development for over four years. “Everyone involved hopes that it comes to fruition and the film goes into production,” a spokesperson for the rapper said, “but as of right now nothing is set in stone and there is no firm start date”.
Of course, it’s likely Em would also do the soundtrack for the film. Lose Yourself, the theme song from 8 Mile, won him an Oscar for Best Original Song in 2003.
Eminem’s last album, Recovery, was the top-selling album of 2010 in the US.
