Eminem has written and is starring in a new boxing drama flick!
Dreamworks had put the brakes on the project in August. But now MGM has said it will make the "Southpaw" film and Sony Pictures will distribute it.
The film, written by Eminem and Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter, tells the story of a left-handed welterweight boxer who becomes a champion before undergoing a tragedy, and later becomes determined to make a comeback.
"Southpaw", set to begin production early next year, is produced by Alan and Peter Riche, along with Paul Rosenberg and Stuart Parr of Eminem’s Shady Films.
