50 Cent revealed that he and Eminem are working on a television show together based on Eminem’s semi-autobiographical film, 8 Mile.
“I’m gonna bring his 8 Mile to television,” 50 Cent said in an interview with Big Boy TV, before confirming that “The Real Slim Shady” rapper is involved in the project, and the two have already begun working on it. “We’re in motion.”
He added that the show is “gonna be big. I’m working. I ain’t got no duds. I’m battin’ a hundred, I’m battin’ a hundred,” likely referring to his long-running Power series on Starz and its multiple spinoffs Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan and Power Book IV: Force.
When Big Boy asked the rapper whose idea it was to turn the cult classic film into a series and whether or not he had to convince Eminem to do it, 50 Cent said he didn’t.
“I think it should be there for his legacy, because if you don’t see… it’s important to me that they understand it,” said the rapper. “You know what I mean?”
50 Cent explained that he envisions the show as a modern retelling of the film, similar to how Peacock made its Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot, Bel-Air.
“I wanna be able to show and offer a lot more details, things that you would say in an interview or different things that you’ve already used, that you put out there, and stuff like that,” he said. “You’ll see those things kind of surface and the temperament of the characters.”
