Here’s some bad and good news at the same damn time. The boxing movie Southpaw which was supposed to star the rap superstar has been put on hold for now. The good news is that it has been done because Eminem wants to focus on music.

Southpaw was the tale of a welterweight boxer who becomes a champ after overcoming a lot of struggle and hurdles. Detroit Free Press reports:

“Southpaw,” about a welterweight boxer battling to put his life and career back together, sought incentives in the first quarter of 2012 as “Untitled MGM Project.” Its estimated in-state spending was about $30.7 million, according to the application.

But the application was withdrawn for “a talent issue,” as the Michigan Film Office put it in the minutes of a March public meeting. That talent, Eminem, is busy elsewhere, according to the real Slim Shady’s camp.

He’s focusing on his music right now, so while he’s doing that, while he’s in that space, he wanted to put this on hold for the time being,” said Eminem spokesman Dennis Dennehy.

Em working on a new album? We definitely hope so!
