Greatest Boxing Rivalries & Fights Of 1960s & 1970s Will Drive Story Of Ang Lee's Next... In 3D

Rumble in the Jungle

Interesting. 

Ang Lee will next tackle what Deadline describes as an epic look at the boxing world of the 1960s and 1970s, as seen through the prism of its biggest rivalries and greatest fights. 

And, by the way, it’ll be in 3D.

The script for the Universal Pictures project will be penned by Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon).

I can only wonder how Lee plans to set this up – or just what the general story will be.

Obviously, I’d assume that, given the premise (biggest boxing rivalries and greatest fights of the 1960s and 1970s), we can expect to see a lot of Muhammad Ali, who fought Ken Norton 3 times between 1973 and 1976; he also fought Joe Frazier thrice in the 1970s (including The Thrilla In Manila), which were some of the most exciting fights in boxing history; and he also fought George ForemanThe Rumble in the Jungle in 1974. 

Did I mention this will be in 3D?
