At 20-years old Mike Tyson became the youngest heavyweight champion and that was just the beginning. His life is so interesting, his “Undisputed Truth” made it’s way to literature, Broadway and TV. Now he’s hitting the big screen.
Tyson revealed to the Daily Mirror that special effects will be used so that Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx can portray him throughout his troubled life in a film.
Tyson said Foxx would be transformed by the CGI technology that changed Brad Pitt from an old man to a baby in The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button and Raging Bull director Martin Scorsese would be involved as well.
”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.
Foxx won an Oscar for his moving portrayal of Ray Charles in the movie Ray. He has asked Tyson to train him for the new role.
