The Hollywood biographical drama about Mike Tyson, which has been in development for more than a year, has been transformed into a TV series. Recall that Jamie Foxx got the lead role in the film. The pilot episode will be directed by Antoine Fuqua. Martin Scorsese is ready to produce the project.
“I’ve wanted to tell my own story for quite a long time. After the League of Legends was recently launched and the fans supported my return to the ring, I guess it’s a great moment. I’m all excited, and I’m looking forward to getting started with Martin, Jamie, Antoine and the rest of the group. I want audiences to see a project that shows them my personal and professional journey. It is entertaining and inspiring,” the athlete said in a statement.
In the near future, the authors of the project intend to search for the necessary platform to promote it. Recall that Fox revealed his intention to take on the role of Tyson several years ago. Last year he admitted that he had already started to train intensively to gain the necessary physical form that the famous boxer had at the peak of his career.
