Earlier last year it was reported that Eminem would finally be returning to the big screen. The new movie titled Southpaw was being made by Antoine Fuqua—the same director who made Training Day—and was meant to have Eminem as the lead role. But soon after, Eminem announced that he would no longer be acting in the film.
Jake Gyllenhaal was cast as the lead to replace Em but fortunately for fans, the Detroit rapper still has some involvement in the film. He recently premiered a snippet of a new track that he’s been working on in the trailer for the new boxing film. His full involvement with the soundtrack is to be determined. Watch the full trailer above.
