Washington, May 2 (ANI): Hollywood actor Jamie Foxx wants to make a biopic based on the life of boxing legend Mike Tyson.

Foxx, who won critical acclaim for his portrayal of soul legend Ray Charles in the flick ‘Ray’, admitted that he would love to portray Mike in a flick.

“I think I would have to play Mike Tyson. I’ve talked to Mike several times and his story is the most tragic American story… Mike’s story is about what America and the world is about today,” Contactmusic quoted Foxx, as saying.

“Coming up at 18 years old and getting his $60 million and not teaching him what taxes are about, about vultures, about people who will never be real with you as long as you have the money,” Foxx added.

Foxx revealed that he has already started working on his dream project.

“I’m working on securing the rights to the movie,” Foxx said. (ANI)
