According to Mike, the Oscar winner already has few things in mind for the possible movie. “Jamie discussed the things he wanted to do. He didn’t know which way he wanted to go, but it was something he wanted to do. He told me not to tell anybody [too much]. He’s just interested in doing it,” Tyson told MTV.

No word at this time as to who might direct or play the abused wife in this proposed project. Until then, Tyson opens in limited theaters this Friday.
