Eminem circling movie role in “Random Acts of Violence”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Eminem continues to build momentum heading into 2011.

Days after it was announced that the controversial rapper led Billboard’s album-sales charts for last year’s “Recovery” record – topping such musical heavy hitters as Taylor Swift and Susan Boyle — we’re learning that Eminem is plotting his return to the silver screen.

Eminem, who showed off additional talents by opening up and acting in Curtis Hanson’s “8 Mile,” is eyeing a role in a new crime thriller at 20th Century Fox titled “Random Acts of Violence,” according to Vulture.

Says Vulture: “A few years back, the script was essentially a poor man’s version of video game Grand Theft Auto. … The script more or less read like a video game, so Fox shifted gears. … The result, say people familiar with ‘Random’s’ current draft, is a thriller more akin to ‘The Town’ or ‘The Departed.’”

The site goes on to say that the script needs another pass, but Eminem and his crew are interested in coming on board to produce.

What do you think? Does Eminem still have the pull to be a crossover media star? Do you want him to get distracted by movies, or would you rather see him go back into the studio and record more award-winning music?

The project sounds like something Eminem certainly could pull off. Much like “8 Mile,” the plot for “Random” sounds like it could pull elements from Eminem’s actual past. We’ll find out if it actually happens.
