Spike Lee Directs Tyson Play

Spike Lee is in Mike Tyson’s corner, but he can’t cut him. The acclaimed Do the Right Thing director will take charge of the tattooed heavyweight’s one-man show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, when it comes to Broadway later this year, according to TMZ. Citing sources close to the boxer, TMZ reports that Kid Dynamite’s self-told tale of sex, drugs, and generally what it’s like to be the baddest man on the planet will also get a Broadway boost from producer Jimmy Nederlander, who’s reportedly signed on for the project. The profane pugilist took his first steps from brawling to Broadway via the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, where his show made its premiere earlier this year.

Note: An earlier version of this cheat described said the producer was Eric Nederlander, not Jimmy.
