Jamie Foxx to Star in Mike Tyson Biopic 0


According to a recent Variety report, Jamie Foxx has just been cast to play the troubled boxer, Mike Tyson, in a brand new biopic that will be written by the same man who penned The Wolf of Wall Street. There are no details regarding which part of Tyson’s life will be tackled, but considering how many controversies the former boxer has taken part in, there should be plenty of material to build a two hour film.

The project currently has no studio backing, but Foxx’s manager Rick Yorn is acting as producer, and is currently in charge of bringing the core elements together and presenting it to potential distributors.
