Eminem is set to star in a Boxing movie called "Southpaw". The boxer will be a welterweight boxer. This will be Eminem second film where he plays the main role his first was "8 Mile". Which was a very successful film and he has done so cameos in last few years one in Adam Sandler film "Funny People". The film has been written by Kurt Sutter who had spoke about about the film and Eminem part.
"He'll play a world champion boxer who really hits a hard bottom, and has to fight to win back his life for his young daughter,"
"I took meetings with Marshall's producing partners over the past seven years, looking for something to do together - I know he's very selective and doesn't do a lot,"
"I love that the title refers to Marshall being a lefty, which is to boxing what a white rapper is to hip hop; dangerous, unwanted and completely unorthodox. It's a much harder road for a southpaw than a right handed boxer."
