This sounds super intriguing!
Jamie Foxx has talked in the past about his desire to portray Mike Tyson in a movie, and we agree that he'd be the right man for the job!
And now Mike Tyson is saying that not only is the new movie happening, but that also Jamie Foxx will portray Mike from how he looked throughout his entire career! Which sounds like mission impossible, but WILL be possible thanks to some dope animation cinematic technical stuff!
Here's what the boxing legend said:
"Me and Jamie Foxx are in discussion, and we gonna do it (sic). 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."
Mike is also going to help train Jamie Foxx to get him in the correct shape for each stage of Mike's career that he portrays.
But it isn't like Jamie will have to start working out from scratch! The actor has been working out for the past five years to get in the correct physical shape, and we're just now starting to notice how buff he looks!
We can't wait to see Jamie pull this off! He's one of the best actors today, so we know he can do it!
