Some Hollyweirdos are throwing Eminem‘s name around with Oscar winners for an upcoming, artsy-sounding movie.
Em is being considered for a role in the new movie “360,” which is being described as a ‘sex-themed drama.’
News that he’s in talks to star in a saucy drama is a surprise, but it’s nothing compared to the other actors involved in this production. Meirelles is the man behind ‘City of God,’ ‘The Constant Gardener’ and ‘Blindness,’ and he’s already tapped both Rachel Weisz and Anthony Hopkins for roles. Now, with the latest report from Production Weekly’s Twitter feed, we’ve got Eminem and Frances McDormand circling.
How Mathers name became tossed around with the rest is anyone’s guess. The other actors are all Oscar-winning talent, and Weisz’s win happens to be for her work in Meirelles’ ‘Gardener.’ As Deadline reported earlier this month, the film was written by Peter Morgan and inspired by Arthur Schnitzler’s play, ‘Reigen.’ While there’s no word on how this incarnation will play out, the source material focused on short scenes between couples both before and after sex, each subsequent scene having one of the previous participants until the sex comes full-circle.
Yea. Folks in Hollyweird are still raving about Em’s tour the force performance in 8 Mile.
We’re on the fence about this one: nothing about Eminem says ‘sex symbol’ to us. And nothing about 8 Mile said ‘awarding winning acting to be repeated’ to us either.
Stick to cameos playing yourself, Em.
