Well it looks like everyone and their mom may be getting into the horror scene, famous rappers included as well. Looks like the Real Slim Shady is going to start making his own horror comics and films, the Shady Talez (yes with a “z”). Check out more below…
Eminem is rumored to be heading back to the silver screen. On Tuesday, a report hit shocktillyoudrop.com that Mr. Mathers is currently in the preparation stages of a new series of horror comics and films entitled ‘Shady Talez.’ Em’s first foray into film was the 2002 semi-biographical drama ‘8 Mile,’ which won the rapper an Oscar for Best Original Song.
“Shady Talez’ is a fictional horror comic book that literally sucks its reader into its very pages,” explains the site. “Each horror story is a wink at an original classic, such as ‘Christine,’ ‘Aliens’ and ‘The Lost Boys,’ while Eminem puts his own dark spin on the genre playing multiple characters and introducing new stories to the new horror generation.”
Update: Unfortunately, it seems Eminem’s Shady Talez project has been shelved indefinitely. Like other projects of his, including a thriller called Have Gun, Will Travel and a boxing drama titled Southpaw, Eminem has decided to focus instead on his music and producing his eighth album. It is probably for the best, as his live answering service and various interviews listed the Shady Talez project as everything from a 3-D take on The Twilight Zone to a crazed, demented version of Alice in Wonderland. Although Underworld co-creator Kevin Grevioux was set to write the script, phone calls to representatives couldn’t confirm if a script was created and it appears that, should Eminem produce any movie, it most likely would be Southpaw.
