Jamie Foxx has reportedly signed on to make a film about beleaguered former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson. The film will be directed by Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire producer/director Terence Winter. It’s unclear what the scope of the film will be, as it seems most every chapter of Tyson’s life is pretty cinematic.

Given Jamie Foxx’s age, it’s unlikely that Foxx roles would focus on his troubled adolescent years in the Bronx and Catskills. But stranger things have happened. I hope that at least some of the film tracks against Tyson’s fighting days, so we can see what Foxx does to resemble the bulldog-sized Tyson in the late 80′s and early 90′s.

Despite Winter’s ties to HBO, and that networks release of its own Tyson film a few years back, this one is slated for a theatrical release, so expect some starpower behind it.

Mike Tyson Does Broadway In ‘Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/mike-tyson-does-broadway-in-mike-tyson-undisputed-truth-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/mike-tyson-does-broadway-in-mike-tyson-undisputed-truth-trailer/#comments Mon, 21 Oct 2013 17:08:19 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=257626 It's like a MadTV sketch come to life.

The line between Mike Tyson and Patti LuPone is blurred once again as Tyson scratches ‘perform a one-man show on Broadway’ off his bucket list. Jointicized by Spike Lee, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth tells Tyson’s story like we’ve never seen it before — lucid and poised and with seemingly no tiger punching. Here Tyson tells the Broadway audience about his rough upbringing, his triumphs, his failures, and his lifelong friendship with Bald Bull.

All in all, the Tyson depicted here is wizened and, in his own words, “domesticated.” So, if you’re hoping to see a huge penis waved around on the Great White Way, Book Of Mormon remains your best bet.

If It’s Broke, Still Don’t Fix It: Mike Tyson Is Returning To ‘Hangover III’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/if-its-broke-still-dont-fix-it-mike-tyson-is-returning-to-hangover-iii/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/if-its-broke-still-dont-fix-it-mike-tyson-is-returning-to-hangover-iii/#comments Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:15:30 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=246426 This is gonna be classic, guys!

Mike Tyson, the source for about 88% of all our entertainment news, has confirmed that he’s coming back for The Hangover Part III. This announcement wouldn’t have even been newsworthy, except after the tepid reception of The Hangover Part II, the producers and cast said that they were going to take things in a different direction.

Oh well. They held out as long as they could.

No plot details are available, but we’ll leave you with this nugget from producer/director Todd Phillips:

“Obviously we always envisioned it as a trilogy. The third would be very much a finale and an ending… I haven’t discussed it with these actors yet. [It would] not follow the same template, but is very much a new idea.”

Obviously. It would be ridiculous and reckless if they had just done the one.

Chris Tucker is facing foreclosure on his waterfront Orlando home. The actor owes the bank $4.4 million on the $6 million home, which has five bedrooms, three fireplaces, and a basement designed to look like a pirate ship. Wow. I’d heard Chris Tucker was crazy, but I didn’t realize he was Nicolas Cage crazy.

Tucker should realize that as crappy as it seems right now, things could always be much worse. Like in the case of these seven celebrities who have lived in some of the dingiest or strangest homes. Keep your head up, Chris Tucker. And whatever you’re thinking of doing, don’t. The world doesn’t need another Rush Hour movie.

Mike Tyson’s Abandoned Mansion

Mike Tyson‘s abandoned Southington mansion is about the only thing that could get me to roadtrip to Ohio. Complete with a moss covered indoor swimming pool, a massive, trashed living room, holes punched through walls, and rusty tiger cages, it’s like a dark-humored Disney World. Oh, I guess that would make it Disney Land.

The boxer lived here for a period in the 1990′s and it has sat abandoned ever since. If I were a high schooler, I would so party in there.

Taran Noah Smith’s Trashed House


Home Improvement’s youngest son Taran Noah Smith has had a bit of a tough time. He was kicked out of his Sherman Oaks home shortly after he and his wife decided to open a vegan restaurant in it. They left the house looking like the site of an acid trip orgy. Cryptic messages and strange drawings were found drawn on the walls that were left standing. That’s why he should have gone to college. That’s were you go to get vandalism out of your system.

HBO has placed a pilot order for a series loosely based on the early life of Mike Tyson. Produced by Entourage creator Doug Ellin and directed by Spike Lee, Da Brick draws its storyline from the boxer’s younger days on the streets of Newark, NJ (aka Brick City).

Pretty exciting. If there are two things that HBO handles well, it’s drama and boxing. Plus, this is the perfect program to follow Game Of Thrones. They can have an entire night themed around cannibalism and horse mutilation. (Deadline)

Mike Tyson’s Tattoo Artist Wants To Block Release of ‘Hangover 2′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mike-tysons-tattoo-artist-wants-to-block-release-of-hangover-2/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mike-tysons-tattoo-artist-wants-to-block-release-of-hangover-2/#comments Fri, 29 Apr 2011 20:01:49 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=209757 He thinks Ed Helms' face tattoo looks a little familiar.

The post Mike Tyson’s Tattoo Artist Wants To Block Release of ‘Hangover 2′ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Mike Tyson‘s face-tattoo artist has sued Warner Bros. and asked for an injunction to prevent the release of The Hangover: Part II. That’s not the crazy part. The crazy part is that he might have a legal leg to stand on.

S. Victor Whitmill (kind of a regal name for a tattoo artist, no?) claims that Tyson gave him ownership of the tattoo design, and, consequently, a copyright on the work. Whitmill has the docs to back up that he’s the copyright holder, and has a signed release from Tyson.

So, the question that remains is: Did the studio need to get his permission to use the design on Ed Helm’s face? There are two sets of circumstances that would preclude the studio from having to get Whitmill’s permission. The first is if the tattoo was different enough that they could argue it’s just a coincidence. Not likely. Though the designs are VERY similar, this might have been viable if, uh, Mike Tyson hadn’t appeared in the original The Hangover.

The second one is that if they argued fair use due to parody. I don’t know enough about copyright law to weigh in on whether this holds water, but we will see as we creep up on the film’s Memorial Day weekend release. I’m sure some sort of compromise will be reached. I think dragging Ed Helms out onto Hollywood Blvd. during the premiere and executing him should do the trick. (THR)

Then again, I think killing Ed Helms is the answer to everything.

‘The Hangover’ Funded Mike Tyson’s Drug Habit http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-hangover-funded-mike-tysons-drug-habit/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-hangover-funded-mike-tysons-drug-habit/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 The Playlist has alerted us to an interview with Mike Tyson that is as candid as you'd expect from the man who once threatened to "f*ck you until you love him." It all came about when Mike wandered into a Las Vegas radio station unexpectedly after a trip to the dentist. If you're familiar with David After The Dentist, you know that you're in for a treat. Here are some of my favorite parts. On The Hangover: “I was doing that to supply my drug habit. I’m sorry I’m coming at you guys like this… I said, ‘Wow, This is going to be really good. We’re going to sell this stuff on 42nd street on bootleg and make a lot of money.’ This is my best thinking on drugs… It wasn’t that way. It was an international success." On becoming a Vegan: “I became a Vegan. Vegan is where no animal products. No livestock products. Nothing." On his slow-transformation to vampirism: "My personal life is so isolated right now. I don’t go anywhere unless I’m invited." (except for when he wanders into radio stations of course. - Ed.) And on the arduous task of wiping one's butt when weighing 350 lbs: “It was hard to wipe my butt… I was sweating like some kind of guy from a moon project or something." Awesome. MTV needs to find a way to get him into the "Jersey Shore" house. (ESPN Radio)
