has been offered to play DMX's nemesis in the film Lazarus,
which was supposed to be the fourth installment of The Crow
series, but now has taken on an identity of its own. For his
role, Eminem was offered $4 million.
The plot centers
around two men who die, are brought back from the dead and
battle for dominance in the Hip-Hop world.
Eminem is also
being courted to do an autobiographical move, in which he
would star, and Imagine Films chairmen Brain Grazer will produce.
Eminem is currently writing songs with Dr. Dre for the film.
In the past, Eminem
has turned down other roles, including one with Denzel Washington
in a Warner Brothers film, training day. Eminem is signed
to Warner rival, Aftermath/Interscope, which is owned by Universal,
the company that also owns Def Jam. Universal seems to realize
their artists have the ability to translate to the big screen.
