After playing Muhammad Ali’s corner man in Ali Jamie Foxx decided it was time to put on the gloves and step into the ring.

Early today Variety, exclusively, announced that rapper turned actor will be playing Mike Tyson in a biopic written by Terence Winter. Winter is the man who wrote the screenplay for Scorsese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street. Which tells me one thing, this biopic is going to be GOOD.

You may remember that HBO made a TV movie about Tyson in 2005, but this will be the first attempt to make his life into a feature film. While it’s not clear what the movie will focus on— the ear-biting incident, The Hangover, his rise to a heavyweight championship— it’s safe to say that Winter will have a lot to work with.
