Jamie Foxx to star in Mike Tyson biopic series
Jamie Foxx is set to star in a new biographical television series centered on the life of Mike Tyson.
The series, titled Tyson, will be executive produced by the boxing legend himself, Foxx, Antoine Fuqua, and Martin Scorsese, according to Fox News.
The project has been in the making for years, initially announced as a feature film in 2014.
At that time, Foxx was set to play the role of Tyson with Terence Winter writing the script. Now, Colin Preston has written the pilot and is in the process of writing the full script.
In a statement, Tyson said, “I have been looking to tell my story for quite some time. With the recent launch of [Tyson’s sports league] Legends Only League and the excitement from fans following my return to the ring, now feels like the perfect moment.”
He added, “I look forward to collaborating with Martin, Antoine, Jamie, and the entire creative team to bring audiences a series that not only captures my professional and personal journey but also inspires and entertains.”
This will be the second biopic series created about the iconic boxer.
In February, Hulu announced that it had ordered a straight-to-series titled, Iron Mike, from I, Tonya screenwriter-director Craig Gillespie and executive producers Margot Robbie and Karin Gist.
However, Tyson criticized the announcement, calling Hulu’s decision “tone-deaf” and said the unauthorized series was “cultural misappropriation.”
