Foxx, Hackford Team On Tyson Biopic

Jamie Foxx is keen on re-teaming with “Ray” director Taylor Hackford on a biopic of former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson says MTV News

Foxx says “We have a certain kinship, and we’ve talked about when we do get back together what it would be like. I think, for something like this, it would be great because everybody remembers that era. And it’s been a long enough time that people need a refreshening.”

Foxx also added that Tyson himself has already given the project his blessing – “I’ve reached out to Mike, and I’ve been open about it. I think that, of all the biopics that are out there, he has the most interesting story that no one has ever heard.”
