Superstar rapper Eminem is set to co-produce Stans, a documentary about superfans.

According to Variety, Stans will arrive later this year, with the 15-time Grammy winner involved via his Shady Films, along with DIGA Studios and Hill District Media.

“Stan”, which comes from a combination of the words “stalker” and “fan,” is a slang term that Eminem coined with his 2000 megahit song “Stan” about an obsessive fan.

Stans will be directed by Steven Leckart, known for Challenger: The Final Flight, writer of What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali and writer and executive producer of the Hulu series Legacy: True Story of the L.A. Lakers.

According to Variety, the film is 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.”

Shady Films’ Paul Rosenberg (Eminem’s longtime manager) and Stuart Parr say, “‘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.”
