Jamie Foxx Says Martin Scorsese Will Direct Mike Tyson Biopic (Video)

We’ve known Jamie Foxx would star in the upcoming Mike Tyson biopic since July, and initial reports said Terence Winter would direct.

However, according to an interview Foxx gave with “The Breakfast Club” on New York’s Power 105 last week, those initial reports were incorrect. Foxx says the legendary Martin Scorsese will be directing the Mike Tyson biopic. And if that’s true, it instantly doubles the amount of hype the film is going to get.

Of course, I say if that’s true because things fall apart all the time in Hollywood, and there’s been no official announcement from Paramount or Martin Scorsese. But Mike Tyson himself believes it’s happening. And he must be thrilled, because he posted an hour-long compilation of all his knockouts on his YouTube channel and told fans to pick his 10 best to be featured in “the Mike Tyson story starring Jamie Foxx and directed by Martin Scorsese.”

Would you like to watch said hour-long compilation of Iron Mike’s greatest hits?

Okay, probably not. But here it is anyway. You can at least skip through to find some of your favorites.

In case you were wondering, the best Tyson KO was against Michael Spinks. Duh.
