Mike Tyson has committed to star in the prank comedy-adventure film, “Public Disturbance,” starring YouTube sensations the Janoskians. Lionsgate announced this week that production for the project has started and that the legendary boxer has joined the cast.
Directed by Danny Lee, the comedy follows the Janoskians after they are invited to perform a stunt at a star-studded birthday bash for Alison, the daughter of a famous media mogul (Tyson). When their act gets cancelled at the last minute, the pranksters plan the ultimate heist to hijack the dull party and create the largest public disturbance of their lives.
