Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner are all said to be under consideration for Antoine Fuqua’s boxing drama “Southpaw” at The Weinstein Company. Fuqua says he’s already talked with Cooper & Renner about the role.
Asked about the possibility of the originally slated to star Eminem returning, Fuqua says the rapper is “still being a part of it, whether he’ll play the lead role or not, we’re discussing that.”
The extent of Eminem’s involvement will be determined by his schedule. It also could be Fuqua’s next project as his Tupac Shakur biopic is currently in re-writes.
