Eminem's "8 Mile" Sequel Not Happening, Says Manager Paul Rosenberg

Eminem’s “8 Mile” Sequel Not Happening, Says Manager Paul Rosenberg. Paul Rosenberg says that Eminem’s iconic film, 8 Mile, isn’t getting a sequel, despite 50 Cent claiming that he has a series for the movie in the works. Rosenberg, who was a co-founder and former president of Shady Records, clarified the situation on Twitter, Friday.

“Just wanna clear this up. There is no 8 Mile sequel. It does not and won’t exist,” he wrote. He didn’t mention 50’s idea for a TV series specifically. Users had mixed responses to the news. One wrote: “That’s good. Some movies are already unique. Don’t need a sequel. Except for an album called Relapse…” Another noted that the comment may not even apply to 50’s TV show. “Thank you, we don’t want that. We want The TV Show, Based off 8-Mile,” they said.

As for 50 Cent’s 8 Mile adaptation, he announced work on the project back in January while appearing on Big Boy’s Neighborhood. He said the show will further Eminem’s “legacy.” He most recently discussed the project during an interview with Men’s Health. “This shit is expected to be just as big as the feature film, just huge, it’ll be huge,” he told the outlet. “The interest in it is because the time period that 8 Mile was capturing further back, so as we move it into modern times you’ll see things about how we function now, how technology changed the way people enter the music business.” Check out Rosenberg’s comments on the status of 8 Mile below.
