Spike Lee directing Mike Tyson pilot for HBO

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Spike Lee and “Entourage” creator Doug Ellin want to get in the ring with Mike Tyson, and HBO is helping to make it happen.
The cable network has ordered a pilot for “Da Brick,” a drama that reportedly would be based on the early days of Tyson. THR reports that Lee “is set to direct with [John] Ridley on board to write and serve as showrunner.” The trade says that the show “will be set in Newark, N.J., which is often dubbed ‘Brick City.’”
Anyone who watched James Toback’s 2008 Tyson documentary knows what an absolute beast the fighter was as he climbed the ranks. Charismatic, yes. But a killer in the ring. I’d love to see Lee capture that intensity on screen. I wonder who’ll play an early Tyson?
No word on whether Lee will commit to the pilot before his “Oldboy” remake, or if he’d stay attached to the Tyson show for HBO if the series was picked up. We’ll continue to track details, and report what we find out.
