It's been known for a while know that Oscar Winner Jamie Foxx (Ray) will be taking on the role of infamous boxer Mike Tyson in an upcoming Biopic.
It's been revealed today that master director Martin Scorsese (GoodFellas, The Wolf Of Wall Street) will be helming the project.
Tyson posted this video to his YouTube channel with the description - "Help me pick my 10 best knockouts to feature in the Mike Tyson story starring Jamie Foxx and directed by Martin Scorcese"
This will be the first boxing movie Scorsese has directed since the incredible "Raging Bull" starring Robert De Niro, a film that many people claim to be the finest boxing film ever made.
Jamie Foxx will of course be taking on the role, a casting decision that gets me very excited for the film as well as of course the director. Foxx blew audiences away with his miraculous performance in "Ray" for which he won the Oscar, he was also nominated for "Collateral" that same year. Could Scorsese direct Foxx to his second Oscar win?
Let me know what you think of this glorious news down in the comments!
