Jamie Foxx is starring as Mike Tyson in an upcoming biopic on the boxing legend—and the actor says Martin Scorsese is directing.

“This will be the first boxing movie that Martin Scorsese has done since Raging Bull,” Foxx said, referring to the 1980 biopic about boxer Jake LaMotta, in an interview with The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1.

Scorsese’s reps did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.
