50 Cent Says He’s Making an Eminem 8 Mile TV Series - WhatsOnRap

In an interview with Big Boy, 50 Cent said he's planning to bring the 2002 drama 8 Mile to TV, and Eminem is involved.

In an interview with Big Boy, 50 Cent revealed that he intends to bring the 2002 drama 8 Mile to television and that Eminem will be associated.

“I'm gonna bring 8 Mile to television," he says at the 24:50 point of the conversation above. "We’re in motion.”

He revealed Em's involvement in certain potential and teased that it's "going to be big." When asked for more information, Fif stated that he wanted to work on a TV adaptation of the Curtis Hanson-directed, Eminem-starring film because it "should be there for his legacy."

“It’s important to me that they understand it,” he added, “I’ma do Snoop’s story too, even though we paused on it because of Starz,” he said. “I was having issues with them over there at the time. So I paused on Murder Was the Case, but I think Snoop is…if the O.J. trial works, why wouldn’t Murder Was the Case work at this point?”

Before discussing the 8 Mile series, Fif stated that he received a "inquiry" regarding his performance at the World Cup last year. "They had a $9 million budget for it," he added at 24:09, adding that he was given $1 million if he could also get Em involved in some way. “I’m just saying, if you would do a one-off show, maybe you would do the biggest live sporting event in the world.”

Thoughts over the proposal reached Em's longtime manager Paul Rosenberg, but it never progressed beyond that.
