Eminem to Anchor "Have Gun, Will Travel" Remake

by | June 13, 2006 | Comments

We haven’t seen a whole lot of M&M since he appeared (as basically himself) in "8 Mile," but now comes word that the rapper will star for Paramount in an adaptation of the old western series "Have Gun, Will Travel" — only it’s being modernized and plunked into Detroit — which is weird.

From Variety: "Debuting in September 1957, the TV Western starred Richard Boone as Paladin, a gunfighter-for-hire.

Concept will be updated to contemporary times and see Eminem playing a bounty hunter. Setting could be Eminem’s hometown of Detroit, but those details have yet to be worked out.

(Eminem’s manager Paul) Rosenberg told Daily Variety that the vehicle will be revamped from the original, with some characters based loosely on ones from the series as well as nods to certain story points."

So, they’re aiming for the flick to be a lot like Rutger Hauer‘s ill-fated ‘modernization’ of "Wanted: Dead or Alive." Only with Eminem. Genius.
