Jamie Foxx to play Mike Tyson in biopic.

Jamie Foxx is reportedly in talks to play Mike Tyson in a new biopic.

Mike Tyson told the The Mirror that filmmakers will use CGI to help Foxx capture the boxer at different stages of his career.

"Me and Jamie Foxx are in discussion, and we gonna do it," Tyson said.

"Within a year to 18 months, we're going to do the Mike Tyson story and he's going to portray me, and now they have this new animation; because you know Jamie's pretty much my age so he can't portray me, but they have this new system."

Tyson also claims that Foxx has asked for boxing lessons and that Martin Scorsese will be involved in the project.
