Spike Lee will be in Mike Tyson's corner when the former heavyweight champ makes his Broadway debut with his one-man show "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth."
TMZ reports that Lee is in final talks to direct Tyson's show which had a week-long April run in Las Vegas. Call it a Spike Lee Joint.
"Lee is gonna be involved," Tyson told the site. "Oh yeah, it's awesome."
Lee was behind the recently cancelled HBO drama "Da Brick" which was loosely based on Tyson's rise in the boxing world and the people surrounding him. It was like an urban version of "Entourage" and had that show's creator Doug Ellin involved as well. The title is the slang nickname for Newark, N.J. where the show was set.
Lee reportedly got the chance to see Tyson's show— which tells almost the same story of the boxer's triumphs and failures as a fighter and his tumultuous upbringing as the son of a pimp and a prostitute in Brooklyn.
The show was an up close and personal look at Tyson's life inside and outside the ring featuring images, music and videos.
The two men have reportedly talked with theater mogul Jimmy Nederlander Jr. to bring the show to the Great White Way— possibly by the end of this summer.
The show was originally performed at the MGM Grand where Tyson notoriously bit off part of the ear of fighter Evander Holyfield during a championship fight. Lee and Tyson are already making changes to the show to get it ready for Broadway.
Lee is no stranger to Broadway and made his debut with "Stalag 17" on 2007. He also recorded the critically-acclaimed "Passing Strange" for a limited release film last year.
