If you were looking forward to seeing Eminem make his return to the movie screen, here's a bit of a bummer. The "Southpaw" project in which Mr. Mathers was supposed to star as a struggling boxer has been put on hold for the time being. There's an upside though: The reason for the hold up is that Slim has decided that he would rather stay with his day-job and is currently working on some new music. The Detroit Free Press quotes Em's spokesman saying: "He’s focusing on his music right now, so while he’s doing that, while he’s in that space, he wanted to put this on hold for the time being." Fair enough! Let's hope Andre's not gonna pull a Marshall too.
