Eminem has quite a few career milestones on his resume. He’s a rapper, songwriter, producer, and actor, and we know we already said rapper but it’s worth noting that many believe he’s the greatest of all time. Now, it seems that Slim Shady is interested in diving into another aspect of the entertainment industry – documentaries. Eminem has a documentary in the works and it could be released within the year!


Eminem fans are familiar with the song “Stan”, which has now become a slang term for a fan. “Stan” tells the story of a fan who becomes obsessed with Eminem to a point that’s dangerous. That same concept will be the subject of the rapper’s documentary, titled Stans. Eminem will co-produce the film about ​​super fandom culture through Shady Films in association with DIGA Studios and Hill District Media. The documentary will be directed by Steven Leckart, who’s famous for his work on What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali and Legacy: True Story of the L.A. Lakers. The film will be financed by Eminem himself, along with his manager Paul Rosenberg, and Stuart Parr, who produced the movie 8 Mile, which the rapper starred in.

Eminem’s Documentary

Stans promises to be “revealing, edgy, and a disarmingly personal journey” and will be told “through the lens” of both Eminem himself and his fans “that worship him.” According to Rosenberg and Parr, “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.” Former MTV executive and producer Tony DiSanto chimed in, “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.”

Stans is scheduled to be released this year and will be available on Paramount/MTV.

Zoo Celebrates Birth of Extremely Rare Przewalski’s Horse Foal Previously Extinct in the Wild

Research has come a long way, and achievements like the birth of a rare Przewalski’s horse are living proof of it. The San Diego Zoo Safari Park shared the news of the birth recently. There was a time when this species of horse was declared extinct. But in 1996, the status changed to critically endangered. Przewalski’s horse is also called the Last Wild Horse.

A Day of Celebration at the Zoo

After 2014, the foal’s birth is the first birth of a Przewalski’s horse at the Safari Park, and he is one of the only four who were born in North America since last year. The baby horse is a result of a statewide conservation initiative that ensures genetic variety across Przewalski’s horse populations. At the Zoo and Safari Park in California, more than 157 Przewalski horses have been born until now. The successful birth of the foal and every other horse of this species shows everyone’s dedication at the zoo to conserving the species. After being declared extinct for a long time, the Przewalski’s horses have survived for around 40 years now, and the most fascinating fact is that all those who are left are the descendants of 12 Przewalski’s horses that were born in their natural surroundings.

The First Successful Cloned Przewalski’s Horse

Kurt was born in 2020 to a surrogate mother and is the clone of a male Przewalski stallion. The living cell line of the male was preserved as part of the Wildlife Biodiversity Bank, approximately 43 years ago. Kurt was named after Kurt Benirschke, who was part of the research committee, and research director at the zoo for a while. Kurt was one of the first successfully cloned Przewalski’s horses. According to Nadine Lamberski, who is the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance’s chief conservation and wildlife health officer, successfully cloning Kurt is not only a huge achievement but also means there is still hope to bring back genetic diversity.
