PostSubject: Eminem Puts 'Southpaw' Flick On Back Burner   Thu May 10, 2012 10:24 am

'He's focusing on his music right now,' a rep for Detroit MC confirms of delay on boxing movie.



t's been almost 10 years since fans saw Eminem in his first big-time movie role, but they'll have to wait a little bit longer to catch him the second time around.

The rapper has long been signed on to star in "Southpaw," a gritty drama about a boxer who tries to mount a comeback in life and in the ring, but it is now being reported that Em will put the flick on the backburner.

"He's focusing on his music right now, so while he's doing that, while he's in that space, he wanted to put this on hold for the time being," Eminem's rep Dennis Dennehy told the Detroit Free Press this week.

In November Em's "8 Mile" will turn 10 years old. The film was both a commercial and critical success, and while Marshall has gone on to make cameos in 2009's "Funny People" and on the wildly popular HBO series "Entourage," he has yet to return to the big or small screen as a leading man.

The film's original distributor, DreamWorks, shelved the boxing project last August, but in October it was reported that Sony Pictures had picked up the flick, which will be made by MGM and directed by Antoine Fuqua ("Training Day," "Brooklyn's Finest").

The good news is that when the Recovery rapper is ready to dive into production, he won't have to travel far from his native Detroit to do it. "What I'm told is when the film does get made, the plan is that the bulk of it will be shot in Michigan. That was always the understanding," said Dennehy.

Are you looking forward to seeing Eminem on the big screen again? Tell us in the comments!
