Eminem: "Has Gun, Will Travel"
According to Daily Variety, the remake which will be released by Paramount Pictures, will have characters and story points loosely based on the ones from the series.
There is also a possibility that the film will be shot in Eminem's hometown of Detroit and will feature a soundtrack or scoring by the Grammy winning rapper.
Interscope/Shady/Aftermath Films will produce the film, with credits going to Jimmy Iovine and Eminem's manager Paul Rosenberg. No production dates or other details were given at press time, but the aforementioned producers and Paramount Pictures are trying to get it on the fast track.
In related news, Eminem's protégé, Obie Trice, is gearing up for the release of his sophomore album Second Round's On Me, scheduled to hit stores later this summer. The album reportedly features appearances from Eminem, Trick Trick, 50 Cent, Nate Dogg and Trey Songz.
Em, Alchemist, Fredwreck, JR Rotem and 9th Wonder are some of the producers on the project.
