Mike Tyson on Facing His Dark Past for Documentary 'Champs'

14 November 2014 3:43 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Boxing legend and pop culture lightning rod Mike Tyson has been on the ropes – figuratively and literally - so many times he's stopped counting. Once the richest and most famous athlete in the world, the ex-heavyweight champion was convicted of rape in 1992 and spent six years in prison. Once a multimillionaire, in 2003 he filed for bankruptcy. But over the past decade, Iron Mike has staged an astounding comeback, launching a second career as an actor with the critically-acclaimed one man Broadway show Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth; a New York Times-bestselling autobiography and walk-on roles

Mike Tyson on Solving Mysteries, Returning to Broadway and Punching Dinosaurs

2 October 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In addition to being the baddest man on the planet, Mike Tyson is also a best-selling author, occasional star of stage and screen, friend of the Black Keys and longtime pigeon aficionado. So, in a way, his latest project makes perfect sense.

It's called Mike Tyson Mysteries, an animated ode to Hanna-Barbera's canon of classic '70s capers (Scooby-Doo, Speed Buggy, Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels, etc). Set to premiere October 27 on – where else? – Adult Swim, it's very bit as odd as you'd imagine, though even that might be selling it short. »

Mike Tyson Angrily Curses at News Anchor on Live TV After Meeting With Mayor Rob Ford

11 September 2014 3:01 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Mike Tyson may not be the best man to put on the spot. The former boxer, 48, lost his temper while on live television on Wednesday, Sept. 10, angrily cursing at a Canadian news anchor when the interview took a turn that he was clearly not happy with.  Tyson was in Canada this week to promote upcoming performances of his one-man show Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, and while in the country, met with disgraced Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. Tyson also endorsed the mayor, who famously made headlines [...] »

Who Will Pick Up Spike Lee's Kickstarter Horror Comedy 'Da Sweet Blood of Jesus'?

21 August 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It's been a busy year for Spike Lee. He celebrated the 25th anniversary of "Do the Right Thing." (My interview with producer Jon Kilik here.) He's the go-to guy for shooting stage and concert shows. He directed "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth," which HBO aired last fall as well as comedy Store documentary "Jerrod Carmichael: Love at the Store," which HBO will air on October 4. He shot "Amex Unstaged Pharrell Williams Live at the Apollo," "Katt Williams: Priceless" and "Go Brasil Go!" He also helped to create (uncredited) opening sequences for "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon." A year ago Lee raised a total of $1,418,910 on Kickstarter for horror comedy "Da Sweet Blood of Jesus," his remake of Bill Gunn's "Ganja & Hess," starring Stephen Tyrone Williams, Zaraah Abrahams, Rami Malek, and Elvis Nolasco in a "movie about human beings who are addicted to »

Jamie Foxx to play Mike Tyson in Terence Winter biopic

30 July 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Variety reported Wednesday that Terence Winter, writer and producer behind shows like Boardwalk Empire and The Sopranos, is throwing his proverbial hat into the literal boxing ring by writing a biopic on boxer Mike Tyson.

And a source told Variety that Tyson would be portrayed by none other than Jamie Foxx. The film is untitled as of yet.

Tyson’s been making his own comeback story in the cultural scene for the last few years, including his infamous cameo in The Hangover, the eponymous documentary Tyson by James Toback in 2008, the release of his one-man Broadway show Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth and most recently of all, a bizarre turn as a cartoon detective on the upcoming TV show Mike Tyson Mysteries.

That still leaves plenty of territory for Winter to mine in his screenplay, be it his seedy complications with the law, his title fights with Lennox Lewis or Evander Holyfield »

Spike Lee Will Adapt 'She's Gotta Have It' as a Showtime Series

5 May 2014 5:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Spike Lee is updating his 1985 feature film debut "She's Gotta Have It," as a half hour comedy for Showtime. Deadline broke the story, reporting that the project will "explore Lee's unique and provocative points of view about race, gender, sexuality, relationships, and the gentrification in Brooklyn." The last hot button issue aside, this marks a big move for the 57-year-old Lee. As movies continue to move to the small screen in various forms, writers and directors formerly exclusive to film are transitioning with them. Lee has directed moves sent straight to TV before, including "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth" and "Bad 25," but this will be his first project written for television.  He also hasn't seen much success, critically or commercially, in almost a decade. Lee's last hit was "Inside Man" in 2006, and his directorial remake "Oldboy" was met with almost universal condemnation last year before bombing at the box office. »

What to Watch: Feb. 11-17, 2014

12 February 2014 3:29 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

We’re a little light on quantity at What to Watch this week but not on quality. And our newest contributor, Dave Canfield, has already handled today’s release of “All is Lost,” a film you really should add to whatever queue allows you to see quality films. When you’re done with that, pick one of these five. Ok, four. Ignore “Diana.” Please.

The Returned: Season One

The Returned: Season One”

Netflix landed a lot of press for the way they stormed the gates of the TV industry in 2013 but I think the story of The Sundance Channel’s evolution into a major player was under-reported. Jane Campion’s “The Top of the Lake” and the brilliant “Rectify” would have been enough but this import of a French series was actually their best program, and one of the best on TV overall. »

'All is Lost', 'Ender's Game', 'Counselor' & 'Best Man Holiday' On DVD & Blu-ray This Week

11 February 2014 6:36 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

All Is Lost Well, while I wish more people would have seen it in theaters, I'm happy more people will likely see All is Lost now that it's available on DVD and Blu-ray as Roadside didn't exactly give the film a widespread release. Granted, by this time it seems the line has been drawn as to whether you're going to harshly judge the film on its nautical merits or run into issues if it has been hyped up too much in your mind. All I say is give the film a fair shake. Rent it, turn off the lights, silence your phone and just watch for 106 minutes and I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Ender's Game Not bad, but not great makes Ender's Game a film I expect more people will see (and probably enjoy) on DVD and Blu-ray than ever would have in theaters. I expect I'll catch this »

Mike Tyson's rise to sporting stardom set for big-screen treatment

15 January 2014 3:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Former heavyweight boxing champion and wife hope to recruit Kevin Spacey and Helen Mirren for movie about his early career

Mike Tyson and his wife Lakiha Spicer are hoping to produce a film about his early struggles and march towards the undisputed world heavyweight boxing title, reports the New York Post.

Spicer said she hoped to see Kevin Spacey cast as Tyson's mentor Cus D'Amato, with Helen Mirren as his adoptive mother, Camille Ewald. She told the New York Post an unknown actor, rather than an established star, would portray Tyson.

It is not known whether the project has financing, but it is expected to be based on a screenplay by Larry Sloman, who co-wrote The Undisputed Truth, the former boxer's autobiography. Spicer revealed the project in a conversation with a Post reporter at the Golden Globes on Sunday night.

Tyson is no stranger to Hollywood, having made cameos in the Hangover films. »

Awards Season Continues With Visual Effects, Sound Mixing And Makeup Nominations

14 January 2014 6:41 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Today was a busy day for some of the smaller guilds with the Visual Effects Society, the Cinema Audio Society, and the Makeup and Hairstylists Guilds all announcing their nominations for 2013.

First, we have the Ves, whose main category to look at is “Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual Effects-Driven Feature Motion Picture,” where we find Gravity and four other nominees that are just going to have to be happy with the fact that they got nominated. This is perhaps the easiest category to call in the entirety of awards season, and I don’t mean just here, but for the Oscar as well (Last year’s winner, Life of Pi, easily took this category before going on to claim the Oscar). It’s true that films like The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and Star Trek Into Darkness had outstanding effects as well, but nothing even came close to the amazing, »

Cinema Audio Society Noms Zig Where Others Zag

14 January 2014 6:04 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Cinema Audio Society noms mostly follow the broad award season trends — but the differences are doozies.

The Cas noms for live action motion picture include “Captain Phillips,” “Gravity,” “Inside Llewyn Davis” and “Lone Survivor,” but for their final nominee, the org tapped a pic that isn’t getting a lot of awards love this season: “Iron Man 3.” Marvel’s pic made it over such other tentpoles as “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” and such awards darlings as “American Hustle.”

The Cas recognizes outstanding achievement in sound mixing. The Motion Picture Sound Editors’ Golden Reel Awards highlight sound editing.

The Cas noms for animated feature, a category added last year, went to “The Croods,” “Despicable Me 2,” “Frozen,” “Monsters University,” and then, once again, to a less ballyhooed title: “Walking with Dinosaurs.”

The TV races will give “Behind the Candelabra,” yet another chance at a statuette, in the movie & minis category, »
