Eminem offered $4 Mil To Star Opposite DMX


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.
