The life and career of the late Muhammad Ali will be the subject of an untitled documentary from LeBron James and Antoine Fuqua, HBO announced Monday. Fuqua will direct the multi-part event while also producing under his Fuqua Films banner. James, meanwhile, will be producing under his and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill Entertainment.
Antoine Fuqua isn’t afraid of a little good old-fashioned close combat. BetweenTraining Day, the now classic L.A. crime drama that earned Denzel Washington an Academy Award, and last year’s boxing thriller Southpaw with Jake Gyllenhaal, the veteran director has seen more blood, sweat, tears, gunshots and pyrotechnics than most paramedics.
