Jamie Foxx has been tapped to portray Mike Tyson in the boxer’s forthcoming biopic and he couldn’t be more thrilled.

HipHollywood caught up with the singer during Friday night’s 14th annual Harlod & Carole Pump Foundation Gala to talk about having the opportunity to play the boxing legend.

“I’ve known Mike since I was 21,” Foxx told us. “I asked Mike the other day how does he feel. And he said ‘I’m happy because I don’t have any money.’ I was like ‘why you say that Mike?’ He said ‘ain’t nobody trying to take nothing from me. My life has always been in turmoil because of the money. All I wanted to do is be the heavyweight boxing champion of the world and fall in love with somebody.'”

Jamie continued, “I think people will be very surprised on the inner story of Mike. It won’t necessarily be about him fighting, because we know that he can fight, but how he was as a man; I think people are really going to enjoy it.'”

According to reports, Wolf of Wall Street writer, Terence Winter will be behind the script. The film is set to start production within the next year.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
