    Superstar Eminem is set to return to the big screen in Southpaw, eight years after his rousing debut, 8 Mile. DreamWorks has acquired the rights to the film, which is a boxing movie where Em will pay a welterweight fighter who must overcome tragedy while fighting for the title. This drama sounds like it's right in Em's wheelhouse.

    Em has had a great past few months, with his comeback album Recovery, which was bestowed with Grammy nominations and is one of the best-selling platters of the year.

    The Southpaw screenplay writer will use themes from Recovery to inspire the script. He is working on that script now.

    Are you excited about Em's return to the big screen?
