Mike Tyson’s Movie Jamie Foxx Directed by Martin Scorsese
Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese will reportedly make a movie based on the life of boxer Mike Tyson with actor Jamie Foxx playing the lead. In a recent interview to a radio station, Foxx confirmed the development.
“So, I’m going to do the Mike Tyson story. Listen, to be in the same room pitching Mike Tyson, as he is on one side, I’m on the other side… And Martin Scorsese at the helm.” While there was no comment on this from Scorsese, Tyson went a step further and posted a video online of his best knockouts. In the caption of the video, Tyson asked fans, “Help me pick my 10 best knockouts to feature in the Mike Tyson story starring Jamie Foxx and directed by Martin Scorsese”.
Scorsese has previously directed the critically acclaimed boxing film Raging Bull on the life of another legendary boxer Jake LaMotta.
