DETROIT (AP) — Eminem is considering a return to the big screen.
The Hollywood Reporter says in a story published Friday that the rapper is set to star in a crime thriller entitled “Random Acts of Violence.”
Eminem’s publicist, Dennis Dennehy confirms to The Associated Press the Grammy- and Oscar-winning performer could end up in the movie but that “nothing is set in stone.”
In a statement sent to the AP, Dennehy says Eminem’s producing team has been developing the project “for some time” and “everyone involved hopes that it comes to fruition and the film goes into production.”
Dennehy says there’s no firm start date.
Eminem hasn’t starred in a film since 2002′s “8 Mile.”
His latest record, “Recovery,” was the top-seller for 2010.
