Nine years have passed since Eminem made his film debut in 8 Mile, and now the rapper is heading back to the big screen for the movie Random Acts of Violence, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
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.
Eminemâ€™s Shady Films will produce the movie.
Do you think Eminem is a good actor ... or should he just stick to rapping?
