Rapper Eminem will wow fans by starring as a suave spy in a movie inspired by the James Bond classics.

The STAN star has spent a massive $5.4 million (GBP3 million) on a luxury Hollywood mansion so he can concentrate on his film career following the popularity of his acting debut in the semi-autobiographical 8 MILE, and he believes a spy thriller will allow him to display his versatility as an actor, reports Britain's DAILY RECORD newspaper.

A close friend says, "He has this great idea for a spy thriller. He's hoping to get a script together. He says it's 007 with attitude."
