In 2014, Variety reported that a Mike Tyson biopic was allegedly in the works, with Jamie Foxx set to star as the world class fighter and The Wolf on Wall Street writer Terrance Winter penning the script. The speculation later proved to be true, with Foxx openly discussing the film in interviews, even going as far as to mention that Martin Scorsese would be directing the flick. This will be the filmmaker's first time hailing a boxing film since his 1980 classic, Raging Bull. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNsc3FMxNl8

Anticipation for the biopic would grow even stronger when Foxx vividly described the film's opening scene during an interview with New York radio station Hot 97:

After the initial buzz of Foxx hyping things up, talk of the film seemed to go a little quiet. That was until moments ago, as Mike Tyson himself appears to have just dropped the film's name via a Facebook post, in which he shares an old photo of him and Jamie pictured side by side.
