Mike Tyson

Broadway Play Will Be

a Spike Lee Joint

0603_tyson_spike_lee_tmz_composite_gettyYou can add "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth" to Spike Lee's legendary resumé ... because TMZ has learned the director will helm the one-man show when it comes to Broadway later this year.

Sources close to the boxing legend tell TMZ ... Lee is in final talks to join the production as it gets ready to debut on the Great White Way. Tyson did the show for a week in Las Vegas and we're told Lee and Tyson have been talking about what changes need to be made as they transition to the biggest stage of all.

Our sources say Lee brought in theater mogul Jimmy Nederlander Jr. who owns a slew of Broadway venues and is interested in bringing in the Tyson show ... hopefully by this summer. 

Tyson was on TMZ Live this week, where he plugged the upcoming show and teased Lee's involvement.

Mike Tyson is Soike Lee's next project? I thought for sure that Saint Trayvon Martin (Murder all White People) would be his next epic.

with a well written script and a accredited director this one man show will play on (not off) broadway !!! M.T. has a tale to tell and perhaps the people involved who were less than honourable are getting a little nervous...

This is as a direct response to Jordan: just because he was convicted by a white Indiana jury of rape doesn't mean he committed the actual crime. Of all the crap Tyson has done in his life and has admitted to, he has steadfastly denied that he raped Desiree Washington, and the evidence against him was less than compelling. It was pretty much a he-said, she-said, and yet he still got convicted. There was no way he should have been found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in that case. But he was a mean looking, big black guy who was being accused of rape, so guess what the jury saw?
