Eminem’s “Southpaw” Film Up And Fighting

Posted By on October 21, 2011

     After DreamWorks reportedly dropped Eminem's 'Southpaw' movie last August, it seems like MGM (along with Sony Pictures distribution) has put in a bid for the film.

     Based on a fast-rising welterweight boxer that fights his way to the title, but must reclaim his past glory after a tragedy, "Southpaw" features a script written by Kurt Sutter, the creator of the "Sons Of Anarchy" television show, and will reportedly be directed by Antoine Fugua (who directed "Training Day").

“In a way, this is a continuation of the 8 Mile story, but rather than a literal biography, we are doing a metaphorical narrative of the second chapter of his life. He’ll play a world champion boxer who really hits a hard bottom, and has to fight to win back his life for his young daughter. At its core, this is a retelling of his struggles over the last five years of his life, using the boxing analogy. I love that the title refers to [Eminem] being a lefty, which is to boxing what a white rapper is to Hip Hop; dangerous, unwanted and completely unorthodox. It’s a much harder road for a southpaw than a right-handed boxer.” (Kurt Sutter)
