 DreamWorks Teams With Eminem And Kurt Sutter For ‘Southpaw’ – Deadline.com

EXCLUSIVE: DreamWorks has made a preemptive acquisition of Southpaw, a pitch for a star vehicle for Eminem (Marshall Mathers) that will be written by Sons of Anarchy creator/exec producer Kurt Sutter. Like in Eminem's 2002 screen starring debut 8 Mile, Southpaw will be fueled by the struggles that inform Eminem's music and mirror his life. Eminem will play a fast-rising welterweight boxer who brawls his way to the title, only to see his world crash down around him due to tragedy. The movie is about his f!ght to reclaim past glory.

The pitch was bought in the room by DreamWorks co chairman/CEO Stacey Snider, who got first crack because she championed 8 Mile when she was Universal Pictures chief. The film will be produced by Eminem's Shady Films' managers and producing partners Paul Rosenberg and Stuart Parr, and Alan and Peter Riche of Riche Productions. The deal comes as Eminem's comeback album, Recovery, just got 10 Grammy Awards nominations.

Sutter, who just completed the third season of his FX series, said the project was borne out of his observation of Eminem's struggles. "I took meetings with Marshall's producing partners over the past 7 years, looking for something to do together," Sutter told me. "I know he's very selective and doesn't do a lot. But he shared so much of his personal struggle in this raw and very honest album, one that I connected with on a lot of levels. He is very interested in the boxing genre, and it seemed like an apt metaphor, because his own life has been a brawl. In a way, this is a continuation of the 8 Mile story, but rather than a literal biography, we are doing a metaphorical narrative of the second chapter of his life. He'll play a world champion boxer who really hits a hard bottom, and has to f!ght to win back his life for his young daughter. At its core, this is a retelling of his struggles over the last five years of his life, using the boxing analogy. I love that the title refers to Marshall being a lefty, which is to boxing what a white rapper is to hip hop; dangerous, unwanted and completely unorthodox. It's a much harder road for a southpaw than a right handed boxer."

Sutter will begin writing immediately, and he will complete a draft by February, before he and his Anarchy writers begin to plot the fourth season of the series.

"There is a rich story her that references his own experience, and I was honored to be able to continue a relationship that began with 8 Mile," Snider told me. She'll steer the project with DreamWorks co-president Marc Sourian. Sutter and Eminem are repped by ICM. David Schiff will be exec producer.

He has said constantly he was waiting for he right role so he would want to have picked a good movie after all that time,lets hope he throws a soundtrack out with it

He was good at acting in 8mile but that was to easy a role this role should see if he can act or not

50 should stop making movies,or at least stop starring in them he's a horrible actor. I respect the grind,but again horrible actor.



On the flip side this sounds interesting at least.Em's name alone is gonna draw a crowd.I do wanna see if he can really act.His cameo on entourage isn't enough to judge from.

This sounds like a fantastic combination of talents….According to Deadline Hollywood, Eminem has signed on to do a movie called Southpaw, written by Kurt Sutter, the creator/executive producer of the critically acclaimed FX series Sons of Anarchy.

Like in Eminem’s 2002 screen starring debut 8 Mile, Southpaw will be fueled by the struggles that inform Eminem’s music and mirror his life. Eminem will play a fast-rising welterweight boxer who brawls his way to the title, only to see his world crash down around him due to tragedy. The movie is about his f!ght to reclaim past glory.

It’s nice to see that after one of the biggest year’s of Em’s career, he’s taking on a film project that shows that he cares about the team involved (ie Sutter), as opposed to some of the crap movies vehicles that many rappers take on as vanity projects, padded with their own inexperienced handlers and homeboys. The project involves some of the same movie studio people that worked with Em on 8 Mile, and will be produced by his manager Paul Rosenberg and Stuart Parr.

Sutter tells DH that he sees a parallel between being a lefty (southpaw) in boxing, and being a white guy in hip hop…and he also sees this new movie, as a continuation of 8 Mile.

Read his comments….
after the jump

Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) says:

“I’ve had a bunch of meetings with Marshall, and I know he’s very selective and doesn’t do a lot,” Sutter told me. “But he shared so much of his personal struggle in this raw and very honest album, one that I connected with on a lot of levels. He is very interested in the boxing genre, and it seemed like an apt metaphor, because his own life has been a brawl. In a way, this is a continuation of the 8 Mile story, but rather than a literal biography, we are doing a metaphorical narrative of the second chapter of his life. He’ll play a world champion boxer who really hits a hard bottom, and has to f!ght to win back his life for his young daughter. At its core, this is a retelling of his struggles over the last five years of his life, using the boxing analogy. I love that the title refers to Marshall being a lefty, which is to boxing what a white rapper is to hip hop; dangerous, unwanted and completely unorthodox. It’s a much harder road for a southpaw than a right handed boxer.”

Tom Cruise was the definition of badass in Collateral.

But yeah, I'm looking forward to this movie. It's being written by Kurt Sutter, who's been involved in two of the best shows of the last decade (Sons of Anarchy and The Shield).
