Eminem's Southpaw Finally Gets Studio Backing

| Filed under: Eminem

Which means we'll finally get to see this thing!

It's been a long time coming, but it seems that Eminem's return to movies will actually make it to the big screen after all. MGM announced today that they have closed a deal to make Em's project a relaity, with Sony Pictures attached to distribute. There was talk that either Alcon Entertainment or Summit Entertainment would pick the movie up, but MGM beat them all to it.

Just as a refresher, Southpaw will find Em playing a "welterweight boxer who fights his way to the title, only to see his world collapse after tragedy strikes. The film will follow Eminem as he fights to reclaim his past glory and win back the affection of his young daughter."

So like 8 Mile, but with more violence and less music. Got it.

Any of U interested in seeing this?

    Well I am really looking forward to the movie and soundtrack. I guess the song (Dare to Dream) that Jimmy Iovine bought for Eminem would be on the soundtrack. I just hope that song can do better than Lose Yourself
