Spike Lee in final talks to direct Mike Tyson Broadway show

Just months ago Mike Tyson debuted his one-man show, The Undisputed Truth, in Las Vegas. And now the show is slated to move to Broadway with Spike Lee reportedly attached as the director.

According to The Daily Beast the Do the Right Thing director will take charge of the tattooed heavyweight’s one-man show when it comes to Broadway later this year.

Throughout the production, which had a limited Vegas run for one week in April, Tyson talked about sex, drugs, and his bad boy ways.

During an interview with London’s Daily Telegraph, Tyson said “It’s therapeutic to talk about what I’ve lived through in front of hundreds of people. And when you’ve been in rehab, you’re very comfortable talking about yourself.”

This will be Lee’s Broadway directorial debut.
