Eminem set to return to acting?

Eminem is reportedly in talks to star in a new crime thriller

Eminem could be planning a return to acting with a new film role.

The rapper - who made his movie debut in the semi-autobiographical 8 Mile nine years ago - is in talks to star in crime thriller Random Acts of Violence, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The film has been in development at Fox for more than four years, and the script has reportedly gone through multiple drafts.

The most recent version apparently features an ex-con just released from prison who is trying to stay on the right side of the law despite pressure from his former associates.

But at the same time, the FBI is trying to recruit him to bring down his old gang.

Writer-director David Von Ancken, who has worked on David Duchovny's hit TV show Californication, is in talks to direct.

Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers III, is currently riding high on the success of his most recent album Recovery - the top-selling album of 2010.

The 38-year-old rapper has only made a few acting cameo appearances since his starring role in 8 Mile in 2002.
