Rapper Eminem is set to return to the big screen after signing a movie deal with Hollywood talent agency International Creative Management. The 8 Mile star recently turned down an offer of $8 million to star opposite Samuel L. Jackson in director Doug Liman's upcoming film Jumper. He had previously pledged to stay away from Hollywood, but has apparently had a change of heart and has agreed to play a role in the remake of the 1950s TV Western Have Gun Will Travel. In the new version, the Stan singer will reportedly play professional gunslinger Palladin, who was portrayed by Richard Boone in the original TV series. ICM will also represent Interscope/Shady/Aftermath films, the Paramount Pictures-based production company Eminem runs with Stuart Parr and David Schiff. Paramount is developing the new film along with the rapper, who is reportedly also recording the music for the movie, which will be shot in his home town of Detroit, Michigan.
