Eminem Promotes “The Eminem Show” Anniversary With Teaser Video

With the working title “Stans”, the documentary will be released via Shady Films and focused on the relationship between the superstar and his dedicated fanbase.

Variety has an exclusive on the project with a press release and quotes from officials.

Shady Films’ Paul Rosenberg and Stuart Parr explained the idea of the movie:

“Stans” will be the opportunity for us to turn the camera around and ask the audience about being fans — and in some cases, fanatics. This is a study of the relationship between fanbase and artist through the lens of one of Eminem’s most fascinating songs and one of the world’s most important entertainers.

The project is being developed in association with DIGA Studios and Hill District Media, with initial distribution from Paramount/MTV. Tony DiSanto, DIGA CEO and a former top MTV executive, says:

Paul Rosenberg and I have known each other since my days on MTV’s ‘TRL,’ a show that was driven by the power of fandom, bringing artists and their fans together. So when he told me about the idea for this film, it felt like we had come full circle. ‘Stans’ will explore the complex relationship between fame and super fandom, told through the lens of one of the world’s most Iconic artists, Eminem, his music, and, especially, his most extreme fans.

Meanwhile, Shady Films synopsis describes a film as a “revealing, edgy, and disarmingly personal journey into the world of superfandom, told through the lens of one of the world’s most iconic and enduring artists, Eminem, and the fans that worship him”.

Reportedly, Steven Leckart (“Challenger: The Final Flight,” writer of “What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali” and co-writer of the Hulu series “Legacy: True Story of the L.A. Lakers”) will be directing the documentary that is scheduled for release later this year.

Mr Rosenberg, we will be happy to share our perspective. You know where to find us, just as over 700,000 of our subscribers know.
