Jamie Foxx to star as Mike Tyson in new series

Oscar winning actor Jamie Foxx is set to star as controversial boxing legend Mike Tyson.
 
The project has long been in the works as a movie, but is now being shopped as a limited series.
 
Foxx is known for his portrayal of iconic figures, after winning an Academy award for his take as Ray Charles in the 2004 biopic Ray.
 
The new series tiled Tyson, comes after streaming service Hulu revealed last month that it had ordered a limited series called Iron Mike.
 
However, Mike Tyson was unsupportive of that project, calling it "cultural misappropriation" and "tone-deaf".
 
Foxx will serve as executive producer for Tyson.
