Rock News: Music's high and low notes

Four members of the film crew shooting Eminem's upcoming movie, "8 Mile," suffered minor burns in Detroit Sunday.

MTV News quotes a local TV station saying the four sustained first-degree burns while filming a scene that involved the intentional burning of a house. They were treated at a local hospital following the accident.

The movie -- whose title refers to Detroit's 8 Mile Road, considered to be the dividing line between the city's black and white communities -- is loosely based on Eminem's life. It also stars Kim Basinger and Brittany Murphy and is scheduled to hit theaters in July.
