LeBron James and Antoine Fuqua Team Up for Muhammad Ali Documentary

NBA superstar LeBron James has teamed up with famed director Antoine Fuqua for an untitled HBO documentary focusing on the life and career of Muhammad Ali.

The project, which will include a mix of original footage and re-creations, will explore Ali’s greatest triumphs and comebacks. It will paint an intimate portrait of a man who, against all odds, repeatedly dreamed and achieved the impossible, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“It’s tough to put into words how much it means to me to be a part of this project honoring the legacy and telling the extremely important story of the great Muhammad Ali,” James said in a press release. “He transcended sports and used his platform to empower people, which paved the way for all athletes and people of every race and gender that came after him, myself included.”

James and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill Entertainment will exec produce alongside Fuqua’s Fuqua Films. Production on the multi-part feature-length documentary has already begun. Fuqua (Southpaw, Training Day) will direct. The project will debut on HBO at a date to be determined.
