With his career on the resurgence, rapper Eminem told VIBE magazine that 8 Mile is not the end of his involvement with the movie business:
Will I end up doing another movie again? Probably yeah. I just did a cameo a few months ago with Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen in a Judd Apatow produced film. It's called Funny People.I kinda do a little cameo in that which was fun by the way. And 8 Mile was not a fun movie to shoot.
Eminem won't be the only musician to appear in Funny People, with Bruce Springsteen also making a cameo.
