Hip hop legend Eminem has returned to Hollywood with a producing credit on a comedy movie about rap battles.
Eminem has produced a comedy movie called 'Bodied' about rap battles.
The legendary lyricist - who starred in the hit 2002 blockbuster as the struggling rapper B-Rabbit in '8 Mile' - has returned to Hollywood and used his music expertise to make the film, which has been directed by Joseph Kahn.
The battle rap satire revolves around a university student, who gets embroiled in a tense race relations on campus when he writes a controversial thesis on the rap battle scene.
Kahn - who is best known for directing music videos - co-wrote 'Bodied' with Toronto battle rapper Alex ''Kid Twist'' Larsen.
Eminem's manager Paul Rosenberg has also received a producing credit on the project, which will premier at the Toronto International film festival in September, and a tweet from the festival's official account revealed that the film stars The Breakfast Club's Anthony Michael Hall, Calum Worthy and 'Avatar' actress Debra Wilson.
Meanwhile, Eminem - whose last record was 2013's 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2' - is thought to be making a new record after director Allen Hughes revealed Dr. Dre, a longtime collaborator of the '8 Mile' star, is working on a track for the 'Lose Yourself' hitmaker's ''latest album''.
He said: ''Dre still records. People don't know this: Dre records every day.
''Literally, he's in there recording songs every day. He's like Picasso in that way. He's always painting. Right now he's producing, in the 11th hour, a track for Eminem's latest album. So Dre's still real active in music, you know?''
Eminem released his debut solo album 'Infinite' in 1996, but he really hit the headlines in 1999 when he dropped 'The Slim Shady LP', which spawned Grammy Award-winning hit 'My Name Is'.
'The Marshall Mathers LP 2' was his eighth studio album.
