Rapper EMINEM is set to knock film fans out with his next big screen role – the hip-hop star will play an up-and-coming boxer in movie SOUTHPAW.
The superstar made a spectacular return to the charts this year with the release of his best-selling record Recovery.
But he is hoping to set the box office alight again with his first big screen acting role since his acclaimed turn in the semi-autobiographical 8 Mile in 2002.
Eminem will play a welterweight boxer who becomes a champ, only to be hit by a personal tragedy. The film will also be loosely based on the star's own life and experiences, according to AllHipHop.com
