You just can’t knock him down. Eminem isn't taking his gloves off when it comes to his boxing drama Southpaw, which was down for the count after being dropped by Dreamworks, but has just gotten another shot at the title. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the drama, which stars Em as a left-handed welterweight boxer who becomes a champion before undergoing a tragedy, and later becomes determined to make a comeback, will begin production early next year. It was also co-written by Em and will be directed by Antoine Fuqua.

 

Southpaw is Eminem’s first return to the big screen since his critically lauded performance in 8 Mile.
