Antoine Fuqua Raises A “Southpaw”

“Training Day” director Antoine Fuqua is now in talks to helm DreamWorks’ boxing movie “Southpaw” which would mark Eminem’s first movie since 2002’s “8 Mile” reports Reuters.

Eminem would play a left-handed welterweight champ who punches his way back to glory after a tragedy. “Sons of Anarchy” creator Kirk Sutter penned the script.

Fuqua is currently shooting a biopic of Chinese concubine Yang Guifei and was slated to do a Tupac Shakur biopic this Summer, now he seems to have left that project leaving its fate uncertain.

Shooting on “Southpaw” aims to kick off in the Fall.
