The 20th Century Fox crime thriller has been in development for more than four years, however after several script changes, the movie company has zeroed in on the rapper for the starring role.

Random Acts will center around an ex-con who is released from prison ... only to find himself under pressure from his criminal friends.

Eminem's character will also be recruited by the FBI in the hopes of bringing down the shady group of crooks.

Eminem’s Shady Films will produce the movie.
