Eminem going 8 Rounds with Antoine Fuqua

Eminem going 8 Rounds with Antoine Fuqua

Eminem’s sophmore effort “Southpaw”, a drama about a boxing champ who returns to the ring after a tragedy, looks to have secured the services of Antoine Fuqua. The “Training Day” and “Tears of the Sun” will direct a picture that’s only really inched forward because of the success of the similiar-themed “The Fighter”.

Kurt Sutter wrote the script for the pic, which is looking to shoot in the Fall, according to THR.

I loved Eminem’s first flick, “8 Mile”. I don’t think anyone can fault the rapper cum actor’s performance in that movie – it was raw, real and raptastic. His performance there – some may say it’s all in his sorrowful eyes – is unbelievable. He surprises the sceptics with his honest, regretful and credible performance as the small fry with a heart of gold who gets his moment.

And that film was great too. Curtis Hanson’s “Mile” actually resembles the original ”Rocky”: The beginning scenes, middle and ‘battle of the rappers’ finale bears much resemble to Stallone’s landmark hit, although it’s microphones here that are the weapon, not fists. And like “Rocky”, it’s an extremely well written tale, and by its end you’ll be well and truly taken with its ostensible underdog.

Look forward to seeing how Eminem fares as a boxer.
