Cousins! The legendary film ‘8 Mile’ recently celebrated its 20 year box office debut and if you were looking for a follow up to the epic Detroit based story, look no further because it ain’t going to happen!
According to a recent run in with TMZ, actor Mekhi Phifer says that the classic film completed its job and should only be celebrated, explaining that there is no need for a sequel. “Sometimes it’s best to just leave it at one. Sometimes it’s just best to leave it alone. Once you make a classic, no reason to fool around with it.”
He says that there has never been talks about a second film while sharing that him and Eminem are still tight to this day and that he’s focusing on music.
“Nope. Probably not. Never. I think, you know, leave the classics alone and it’ll be all good. Let’s just live with the 8 Mile.”
Mekhi was asked wouldn’t it be interesting to show where the main characters are now 20 years later following the Rabbits rise to fame. He responded in stating that, “The story that we told is the story. You know, I mean, it could be interesting, but I wouldn’t be in it, and I’m sure Eminem wouldn’t be in it either.”
Cousins, do y’all agree?
