Eminem returning to the movies.


Last time we saw Eminem on the big screen was in his classic movie 8 mile which portrayed his lifestyle growing up in the streets of Detroit Michigan.Well now Eminem is back and he is playing a boxer? Dreamworks has acquired the rights to a new boxing movie entitled “Southpaw”. The movie will star Eminem as a welterweight fighter who must overcome tragedy while trying to win the title.

Kurt Sutter, the creator of FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” has signed on to write the screenplay for the movie, which he says will draw upon the themes of Eminem’s latest album ” Recovery”. The film will also be co-produced by Shady Films managers Paul Rosenberg and Stuart Parr. Screenplay writing for this movie will begin in February, which could be the first time Eminem wins artist of the year at the Grammys (he is nominated for 10 of them).
