Eminem to Return to the Big Screen

Eminem

Eminem is ready for his close-up. Having conquered the charts with last year’s best-selling album Recovery, the Detroit rapper is following up his starring role in 2002’s 8 Mile with his first foray on the big screen in almost a decade.

According to NYMag.com’s Vulture, Em will star in the upcoming crime thriller Random Acts of Violence, produced by his Shady Films associates Paul Rosenberg and Stuart Parr. The Grand Theft Auto-inspired script, which is being compared to The Town and The Departed, focuses on an ex-con fresh out of prison, with his old gang trying to coax him back on their team and the FBI trying to use him as a pawn to capture the criminals.

Instead of choosing sides, the ex-con tries to pit them against one another to exact revenge on those who initially put him behind bars. Violence is still in development, but director David Von Ancken (Showtime’s “Californication”) will most likely helm the pic.

    What about that “Southpaw” thing?
    But I’m so happy he’s doing some more big screen, he’s an amazing actor. Keep it up Marshall.

    I like this story better than that Soutpaw idea. There are enough boxing movies. Rocky wannabes.

    While this idea sounds interesting (I loved “The Town” and “The Departed”), I’ll pass on all the Eminem movie speculation for now since he doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to make another film.

    I guess I can believe this film project. It’s on CNN’s website and for some reason, I believe what they post.
