This announcement is gonna make your knees weak – Eminem is back in a second feature film about his life

“8 Mile”, where we got to follow young, white rapper Jimmy “B-Rabbit” Smith Jr, played by Eminem, in his battle to conquer the underground rap game, took cinema goers by storm in 2002. The film was a biopic of Eminem’s own struggle against prejudice and society’s expectations and struck a cord with many people who’ve experienced what it means to work towards something and pull yourself up from the slums. Now, 13 years later, Universal Pictures and Eminem are announcing a sequel to the widely popular film. At a press conference in Eminem’s native Detroit this morning, Eminem made this announcement:

“Hey everyone, I’m excited to tell you about a new movie coming up. Working title is “8 Mile 2″ and it will be about my life after I came up and will follow basically my whole career. I’m really looking forward to seeing this movie with y’all and I hope you like it as much as I’ve liked filming it.”

Surprisingly, the flick is being directed by none other than Clint Eastwood, a man you don’t normally think of when you think of rap. Eastwood had his own comments about the upcoming film:

“This movie was a big challenge for me, not only because of the subject matter, but also because it’s hard to dramatize a man’s entire career like we set out to do. Nevertheless I am very pleased with how things are going and I think we’re really coming up with a multi-dimensional, well rounded story about Eminem’s career, both the bright and the dark parts.”

Not much information as to the story line of the movie has been released yet, but we’ll update you as soon as they arrive, in the meantime, to discuss the upcoming movie, tweet under #8Mile2
