*Mike Tyson says Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx will get a little digital assistance to play him in a biopic they’re planning to start shooting within a year to 18 months.

In an interview with IGN Entertainment, the former heavyweight champion said the face of Foxx, who is 46, will be manipulated using CGI animation technology for scenes in which Tyson, 48, was a younger man.

According to Variety, the movie is in development under Foxx manager Rick Yorn, who will produce the film.

Terence Winter, whose screenplay credits include “The Wolf of Wall Street” and episodes of “The Sopranos” and “Boardwalk Empire,” will write the script, Variety reported, citing anonymous sources.
