      He compares the project to Eminem’s 2002 biopic “8 Mile,” which was “inspired” by the Detroit rapper’s early path toward stardom.

 

       “We are putting together the (film) right now as we speak, as a matter of fact,” the artist tells Rap-up.com. “The name of the movie is ‘Venice Beach’ and basically it’s going to be my ‘8 Mile,’ loosely based on (my) life, but not really.”

 

       Like Eminem, Ne-Yo plans to star in his film, which carries the title “Venice Beach.” His acting resume includes an appearance in 2007’s “Stomp the Yard.”
