YEREVAN, JANUARY 7, ARTSAKHPRESS. American rapper and businessman 50 Cent revealed that he’s adapting the 2002 film 8 Mile into a TV series with the help of Eminem, Billboard reported.
“I’m gonna bring his 8 Mile to television,” the rapper said in an interview with Big Boy TV about Eminem’s semi-autobiographical film. “We’re in motion.” (50 also confirmed that Eminem will also be involved in the project after host Big Boy asked, “Does he know?”)
“It’s gonna be big.”
“Who’s idea is that? Did you have to convince Em? Because 8 Mile is a classic,” Big Boy then queried, leading 50 to respond, “No, I think it should be there for his legacy, because if you don’t see… it’s important to me that they understand it, you know what I mean?”
