Eminem to Return to the Big Screen

  /  01.07.2011


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.
