Mike Tyson has jumped on board a new superhero film project titled Bunny-Man and he is set to play himself. The former heavyweight boxing champion revealed the news at a press conference held in the Northern city of Turin with Italian producer Andrea Iervolino and writer Enrico Remmert in attendance. The movie will be shot in Turin, Italy.
Bunny-Man involves “a multimillionaire superhero who strikes against evil forces in anonymity wearing a rabbit mask. He is driven by the desire to avenge his sister who committed suicide after suffering a violent act, images of which wound up on the internet.”
Iervolino, whose production credits include Michael Mann’s Ferrari, Johnny Depp’s Waiting for the Barbarians, and Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend, shared in a statement: “We are excited to embark on this innovative project, 95% of which will be shot on a virtual set. We are redefining the boundaries of cinematographic creativity with the goal of offering the audience a unique experience.”
Iervolino added: “We are also proud to have a legend like Mike Tyson in our cast, who will certainly help make ‘Bunny-Man’ even more special.”
The film’s director and the rest of its international cast are also being kept under wraps. I have no idea what to expect from this, but we know for sure that it’s going to be interesting.
