Eminem is slated to star in Paramount Pictures’ feature film adaptation of the CBS series, Have Gun — Will Travel. The rapper will play a bounty hunter in the film, which will nod to the original Western TV series that debuted in 1957, Em’s manager, Paul Rosenberg, told Variety. Interscope/Shady/Aftermath Films will produce, and along with Rosenberg, Interscope co-chair Jimmy Iovine will get production credits. Em is also set to work on either the soundtrack or scoring. The rapper’s publicist, Dennis Dennehy, confirmed the news with Spin.com.
