SOUTHPAW: Eminem Ready to Step Into the Ring

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Eminem, who scored several years ago with the drama 8 Mile, is ready to climb back into the movie ring with the boxing drama Southpaw.
Produced by MGM with Training Day director Antoine Fuqua at the helm, the film is described as follows: "The picture tells the story of a welterweight boxer who, despite being left-handed, becomes a champion, but then tragedy strikes. He has to make a comeback in his life and in the ring. Eminem, a native of the mean streets of Detroit, has said that he sees the story as analogous to his own life, in that he has had to fight for what he has achieved. Some reports have said he considers this a natural progression from 8 Mile, in which he co-starred with the late Brittany Murphy, about a working-class rapper who rises from the streets to find success. That movie won Eminem a surprising amount of praise from critics and grossed more than $240 million worldwide."
