The Mike Tyson biopic project, which has long been in the works as a movie, is now being shopped to various streaming outlets as an authorized limited series instead. Additionally, the series, which will “span the life” of Tyson, has added Martin Scorsese as part of the executive producing team. Scorsese was on-board to direct at one point.
Antoine Fuqua (The Equalizer, Southpaw) is reportedly set to direct the series that stars Oscar winning actor, Jamie Foxx.
No word on which streaming services are interested yet. Stay tuned for more updates.
