Khris Davis tapped to play George Foreman in Sony Biopic

According to Deadline, George Tillman Jr will be the director of this biopic and is set up under Sony’s AFFIRM Films label.

The film will follow the remarkable life and times of George Foreman, from Olympic Gold medalist to World Heavyweight champion, Rumble in the Jungle fight with Muhammad Ali in Zaire, to preacher, then stepping back in the ring to regain the heavyweight champion at age 45, the oldest heavyweight champion in boxing history.

We can’t wait to see the project!
