This week during the Cannes Film Festival in Paris, filmmaker James Toback will unveil his new documentary, "Tyson," an in-depth look at the life of Mike Tyson. The film contains segments from over 30 hours of interviews with the former champ, plus highlights and lowlights from his career.
"I look at it now and I'm embarrassed I did it," Tyson told the New York Times. "There's a lot of information people didn't need to know. I don't know who I am. That might sound stupid. I really have no idea. All my life I have been drinking and drugging and partying and all of a sudden this comes to a stop. I never thought I would live to this age."
The film will not only talk about the successes the soon to be 42-year old Mike Tyson had in his career, but also his marriage and bitter divorce from actress Robin Givens, his three-year prison sentence for rape and his squandering of 400 million dollars on his way to bankruptcy. Tyson's drug abuse is also looked at in the film, but he's currently been clean for 15 months and is looking to get his life straight and narrow. There's no word on when the film will be hitting theaters in the states, but it said to be a powerful film.
