  • He noted there were a lot of things that he loved about working on “8 Mile” 
  • The rapper won the Academy Award in the Original Song category for "Lose Yourself"

Eminem made his big-screen debut in 2003 with “8 Mile.” The movie received acclaim from critics as well as the audiences and went on to win an Academy Award in the Original Song category. Since then, the rapper has not been part of any movie but now, he has revealed that he is not ruling out the possibility of making a comeback on the big screen.  

Speaking in an interview with Variety, the 47-year-old rapper opened up about his future projects and how he would like to be back on the silver screen if he gets a good script. The “Rap God” hitmaker noted that he does not have anything in the “pipeline” as of now and if something good comes up, he would like to give it a try.

“I am not gonna say I do not, because if the right script comes along and it is something that fits with my schedule I might take another dive in it,” Eminem said.  

The “Love The Way You Lie” hitmaker performed “Lose Yourself” at the 92nd Academy Awards and stunned everyone by making an appearance.

Later in the interview, the “Berzerk” singer further added there were a lot of things that he loved about working on the movie while there were some things that he did not like. Recalling that moment, the musician stated it was tough working on someone else’s schedule and it took some time to get hold of that.

“I t is tough when you have got to be on someone else's schedule, with the way that I work. But yeah, I am certainly glad that I did it, and there were parts that were definitely fun, it was just a lot,” Eminem said.

He recently revealed that he never thought he would win an Oscar for that particular song and they performed the track at the Grammys, so he and his team thought that it would be unwise to take the stage at the Oscars back then.

“Back then, I never even thought that I had a chance to win, and we had just performed 'Lose Yourself' on the Grammys with the Roots a couple of weeks before the Oscars, so we did not think it was a good idea. And also, back at that time, the younger me did not really feel like a show like that would understand me,” Eminem said.
