Eminem Prepping Horror Films Series?
Eminem is rumored to be heading back to the silver screen. On Tuesday, a report hit shocktillyoudrop.com that Mr. Mathers is currently in the preparation stages of a new series of horror comics and films entitled 'Shady Talez.' Em's first foray into film was the 2002 semi-biographical drama '8 Mile,' which won the rapper an Oscar for Best Original Song.
"Shady Talez' is a fictional horror comic book that literally sucks its reader into its very pages," explains the site. "Each horror story is a wink at an original classic, such as 'Christine,' 'Aliens' and 'The Lost Boys,' while Eminem puts his own dark spin on the genre playing multiple characters and introducing new stories to the new horror generation."
According to the report, Eminem will also produce the series along with Dallas Jackson and John Davis while writing duties fall to 'Underworld' co-creator Kevin Grevioux. While the site appears to have obtained a good deal of leaked information, there is no word yet on whether or not Em will score the films and his camp is reluctant to confirm the project until there is actual work to plug.
"There's been talks," said Dennis Dennehy, the rapper's publicist, to XXLMag.com. "I can't confirm anything yet."
We only ask that Eminem finishes 'Relapse 2' before putting too much work into the horror film anthology. Have you seen his cypher appearance on the BET Hip-Hop Awards yet? Good lord!
