And, by the way, it’ll be in 3D.
The script for the Universal Pictures project will be penned by Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon).
I can only wonder how Lee plans to set this up – or just what the general story will be.
Obviously, I’d assume that, given the premise (biggest boxing rivalries and greatest fights of the 1960s and 1970s), we can expect to see a lot of Muhammad Ali, who fought Ken Norton 3 times between 1973 and 1976; he also fought Joe Frazier thrice in the 1970s (including The Thrilla In Manila), which were some of the most exciting fights in boxing history; and he also fought George Foreman – The Rumble in the Jungle in 1974.
Did I mention this will be in 3D?
