Slim Shady Will Travel

Eminem is set to star in a modernized, motion picture version of the late ’50s TV western series “Have Gun – Will Travel.”

The main character’s role as a gunfighter-for-hire will be updated, casting Eminem as a bounty hunter in the present day, according to Variety.

The film could be set in the rapper’s hometown of Detroit, but the film is still in early development.

While the plot won’t be centered on music, it’s possible that Eminem could be a part of the soundtrack or score.

Eminem is a hot ticket since the successful “8 Mile” film of 2002 and, according to Variety, multiple studios have been courting the real Slim Shady. Paramount-based Interscope/Shady/Aftermath Films is producing the movie.
