Jamie Foxx is gearing up to play boxing legend Mike Tyson in an upcoming biopic — and showed off his huge, muscular physique — and the results have him trending on Twitter.
The film, which was first announced in 2014, has been slow to come to fruition — but Foxx has confirmed that the biopic is officially happening.
“It’s a definitive yes,” Foxx said during an interview on Instagram Live. “Look, doing biographies is a tough thing. Sometimes it takes 20 years to get them done. But we officially got the real ball rolling.”
He added, “We want to show everybody evolves,” Foxx said. “I think when we lay the layers on Mike Tyson in this story, I think everybody from young and old will be able to understand this man’s journey. […] And then just the technology of how I’m gonna look, I guarantee you people will run up on me in the street, and ask for autographs, and think that I’m Mike.”
