Oscar Award Winning comedian, and actor has apparently signed on to play legendary boxer.
According to The Sun,
Mike Tyson said, “It’s on, as of right now. Jamie Foxx has signed on for it. Filming hasn’t started yet but it’s going to happen.”
The film will focus on Tyson's life story, and will portray a series of events throughout it. He also added: “A lot of people aren’t going to like the things I’ve done in my life.”
There's no doubt he has had his fair share of scandals in the past, including a 6-year prison sentence for a rape conviction back in 1992, and biting off fellow boxer Evander Holyfield’s ear.
Along with Foxx, who has been in the gym training and mimicking Tyson's moves, it’s rumored that legendary director Martin Scorsese will be directing the biopic.
