Eminem Starring in Shady Talez, a 3D Anthology Horror Movie
Aww shit dawg! Eminem, aka Marshall Mathers, will star in Shady Talez, his first feature film in seven years (though he did appear briefly in Judd Apatow's Funny People earlier this year). The project, with a style described as "The Twilight Zone meets Creepshow," is a new 3D anthology horror film. Marvel will be publishing a four-issue comic book series based on Shady Talez in 2010 as well. Mathers will produce and star in multiple roles in the film, which will give an "urban wink" to genre classics such as Christine, Aliens, and The Lost Boys. The film is being produced by the newly formed D.J. Classicz/Davis Entertainment.
According to Screen Daily, where this news comes from, the script for Shady Talez is being co-written by Dallas Jackson (who is also writing The Last Dragon remake for Sony) and Kevin Grevioux (creator of the Underworld franchise). They didn't reveal much else, but I think it's best to keep the rest a secret, as this sounds pretty damn cool and I don't want to spoil it all this early. I actually just watched Creepshow for the first time a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it, though I prefer Trick 'r Treat when it comes to anthology horror. I just love that stuff and that's why, even though it's Eminem, I'm interested in this. Thoughts?
