Hollywood actor, Jamie Foxx, shared with his fans today that he is set to play boxing legend Mike Tyson in a movie and has to undergo a body transformation to look the part.

The movie is supposed to be a biopic on Tyson, detailing his life and career journey.

Since the 2014 announcement that Foxx, now 52, would star in a biopic centered on the legendary boxer, the project has been tangled in the web of film development.

Now, according to Jamie Foxx himself, things are finally moving forward. He posted pictures of himself on his Instagram page showing the transformation his body has been through.

He said:

The transformation begins… “FINDING MIKE”. It is no secret that I have been pursuing the @miketyson biopic for some time… people always ask me when is it going to happen?… things have finally lined up… A few months ago we started the journey… The first but biggest task is to transform the body… with a regiment of pull-ups dips and push-ups we are off to a pretty good start… we have a ways to go but God willing… yesterday on my good friends @markbirnbaum show. I shared these early pics of the process… like I said we have a ways to go… But I am prepared to get there! #swipeleft TYSON!

Here  are the photos he posted:
