The Champ Is Here: Jamie Foxx Is Set To Play Mike Tyson In A New Biopic

July 31, 2014 0



This has the potential to be very good. Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx and former heavyweight champion boxer Mike Tyson are in talks to have Foxx play the role of Tyson in a upcoming biopic. Mike Tyson says that director Martin Scorsese would direct the film and Tyson has begin to train Jamie foxx for the role.



Many may remember the fantastic job Jamie Foxx did in the film Ray, based on the life of Ray Charles and a film about Tyson could be just as epic. The film is still in the works and Tyson has said it’s most likely a year after from production. I hope this happens, I’ll be in the theater opening day.

Do you think Jamie Foxx could play the role of Mike Tyson well? Stay tuned to HHS1987 for more information on the film.
