Mike Tyson to Play Himself in Superhero Movie 'Bunny-Man'

The former heavyweight boxing champion on Tuesday attended a press conference held in the Northern city of Turin with Italian producer Andrea Iervolino and writer Enrico Remmert to announce “Bunny-Man,” which will be entirely shot in Turin.

Iervolino, whose production credits include Michael Mann’s “Ferrari,” Johnny Depp-starrer “Waiting for the Barbarians” and “Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend,” is producing the film via his TaTaTu shingle.

“Bunny-Man” involves a multimillionaire superhero who strikes against evil forces in anonymity wearing a rabbit mask, according to a provided synopsis. 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.

“We are excited to embark on this innovative project, 95% of which will be shot on a virtual set,” Iervolino said in a statement. He added that with “Bunny-Man” “we are redefining the boundaries of cinematographic creativity with the goal of offering the audience a unique experience.”

“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 producer went on to note. No details were provided on Tyson’s role.

The film’s director and the rest of its international cast are also being kept under wraps.

Tyson, according to Italian press reports, landed on Sunday in his private jet at Turin’s Caselle airport, accompanied by his wife Lakiha Spicer and his entourage.

Tyson’s previous movie appearances comprise cameos as himself in “The Hangover” and “The Hangover Part II” and a role as Frank, a corrupt American real estate developer who is also a boxer, in “Ip Man 3.”
