Mike Tyson is one of the most controversial and bizarre figures to emerge out of the sports world in the past few decades, so it’s not surprising that a biopic about his life is being made for the big screen. What is slightly surprising is the amount of talent backing the project. Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx signed on to play the former boxing heavyweight champion, and Terrence Winter, fresh off an Oscar nomination for writing ‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’ is set to pen the script. The news comes via Variety, who reports that Foxx’s manager Rick Yorn is producing the project. This should be a good one.-TO
