Jamie Foxx landed the role as the heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. However, the biopic rumored to be titled “The Mike Tyson Story” doesn’t have an official release date yet. This wouldn’t be the first biopic for Foxx who starred in “Ray” as Ray Charles in 2004. This role earned him a “Best Actor” Academy Award.
Mike Tyson did confess to IGN recently quote “I’m never going to watch the movie of course because…Or I’ll probably watch it alone.” Noting how challenging it would be to relive one’s mistakes onscreen. Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter are expected to be involved in the film project as well.
