So after an eight-year layoff from the big screen, Eminem is taking the advice of Guns ‘N’ Roses and getting in the ring, according to The Wrap’s Jeff Sneider. He’ll play a welterweight boxing champ in DreamWorks’ Southpaw, penned by Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter. In much the same way that 8 Mile tapped into elements of the rapper’s life story without being a literal biography per se, the script will serve as a “metaphorical continuation” of his offscreen life — so he’ll be reclaiming past glory, winning back the affection of his daughter, etcetera, etcetera. Probably donning a skull cap, too. A win for all involved, if done right.
