Paul Rosenberg responds Eminem’s “8 Mile Sequel” rumors




The cult masterpiece film 8 Mile’s legacy won’t be altered, according to Paul Rosenberg.

Rosenberg, Eminem’s longtime manager and business partner, claims that the Detroit legend’s critically acclaimed movie “8 Mile” won’t have a follow-up. The original movie was released back in 2002 and went to win the Academy Award (Oscar) for Best Original Song with “Lose Yourself.”

The rumors of 8 Mile sequel have been circulation on social media in the past few days. Paul Rosenberg, who was a co-founder and former president of Shady Records, clarified the situation on social media on Friday.

“Just wanna clear this up. There is no 8 Mile sequel. It does not and won’t exist,” he wrote. 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: “Thank you, we don’t want that. We want The TV Show, Based off 8-Mile,” they said.

We might not be getting the sequel of 8 Mile but 50 previewed the idea of creating 8 Mile TV series 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 s–t is expected to be just as big as the feature film, just huge, it’ll be huge. 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.”
