Eminem is co-producing a documentary about the culture of obsessive superfans.

The Detroit rapper’s upcoming documentary is named after the term he coined with his 2000 song of the same name featuring Dido. In the song, Em raps from the point of view of a delusional fan who thinks he shares a parasocial relationship with the rapper.

Helmed by Steven Leckart, “Stans” is scheduled for a 2024 release and is described as 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.”

Em’s Shady Films is co-producing with DIGA Studios and Hill District Media, while Paramount/MTV will serve as the distributors.

“’Stans’ will be the opportunity for us to 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,” Stuart Parr and the rapper’s longtime manager, Paul Rosenberg, shared in a statement.

Cementing the popularity of “stan,” the word was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2017, while two years later it was added to Merriam-Webster.
