Following in the footsteps of rapper Eminem, Halsey has signed on to a movie based on her on life story.

Sony Pictures closed a life rights deal with the singer/songwriter with the hopes of having success like 8 Mile did for Eminem back in 2002. The goal is to have this new movie propel Halsey's career into super stardom. The film would be her first acting role.

Born Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, Halsey is a New Jersey native and has made headlines as of late being a speaker at the 2018 Women's March in New York City last month.

Halsey is already making a splash on the music scene with hits like Him and IBad At Love, Now Or Never, not to mention being on the mega-hit Closer by The Chainsmokers.
