Eminem is to star in his first film in seven years, a 3D horror entitled 'Shady Talez'.

Screen Daily reports that the film has been described as a cross between 'The Twilight Zone' and 'Creepshow'.

The rapper will also produce the film and it will be adapted into a four-issue comic in 2010.

Eminem previously starred in '8 Mile' in 2002.
