Eminem has been MIA from acting since his big debut in 8 Mile. Things have been a bit quiet for the rapper professionally after some personal issues including a stint in rehab and a second attempt at a re-marriage with Kim. Now he has decided to make a comeback... again. This time he is really branching out. Variety reports:
Eminem is attached to star in a contemporary feature adaptation of the CBS series "Have Gun -- Will Travel" for Paramount Pictures.... Debuting in September 1957, the TV Western starred Richard Boone as Paladin, a gunfighter-for-hire.... Concept will be updated to contemporary times and see Eminem playing a bounty hunter. Setting could be Eminem's hometown of Detroit, but those details have yet to be worked out.
So an updated Western with Eminem...wonder who came up with that one?
