Eminem is attached to star in a new crime thriller called 'Random Acts of Violence'.

New York Magazine says the film tells the story of a former convict who finds himself caught between his old gang and the FBI, which wants him to work as an informant.

'Random Acts of Violence' has been described as being similar in feel to 'The Town' or 'The Departed'.

If the film goes ahead, it will be Eminem's first since 2002's '8 Mile'.
