Eminem: 'Southpaw' Starring Role?

Eminem is set to star in the upcoming film Southpaw, which will be distributed by Dreamworks, according to Deadline.

Southpaw is about “a fast-rising welterweight boxer (Eminem) who brawls his way to the title, only to see his world crash down around him due to tragedy. The movie is about his fight to reclaim past glory.”

The film will be written by Sons of Anarchy creator/executive producer Kurt Sutter.

Eminem was recently nominated for 10 Grammy Awards for his album Recovery.
