It’s been revealed that Jamie Foxx will be portraying Mike Tyson in an upcoming biopic. Tyson himself revealed that CGI technology will be used to help Foxx portray him throughout the film. Tyson says:
”Me and Jamie Foxx are in discussion, and we gonna do it. Within a year to 18 months, we’re going to do the Mike Tyson story and he’s going to portray me, and now they have this new animation; because you know Jamie’s pretty much my age so he can’t portray me but they have this new system.”
Tyson also added that Director Martin Scorsese would be involved in some form. We all know Jamie Foxx won an Oscar in 2004 for his portrayal of Ray Charles, but it’ll be interesting to see him take on this role as the former Heavyweight Champ. Foxx has even asked Tyson himself to train him for the role. We’ll see how it goes.
