Jamie Foxx has reportedly landed another huge role to play Mike Tyson in an untitled biopic. According to insiders, Terence Winter will write the script while Rick Yorn, Foxx’s manager, will produce the movie.

In a past interview, Tyson said:

“Listen, me and Jamie Foxx are in discussions and within a year or 18 months we’re going to do the Mike Tyson Story,” the former fighter said when asked where he’d like to go with his film and television career next.

“I think that Martin Scorsese is going to be involved in it as well,” Tyson said. “I’m never going to watch the movie of course because…Or I’ll probably watch it alone,” he added, noting how challenging it would be to relive one’s mistakes onscreen.
