Eminem to play boxer
Eminem's going back on the big screen.
Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, will play lead the role in the film which will be penned by Kurt Sutter.
The movie follows a fast-rising boxer who wins the welterweight world title, only to see his world come crashing down following a tragedy and his subsequent attempts to regain glory.
The script will be partly based on Eminem's struggles with prescription drug addiction.
