You can add “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth” to Spike Lee’s resumé … the legendary filmmaker will direct the one-man show when it comes to Broadway later this year.

Sources close to the boxing legend say 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,

Lee and Tyson have been talking about what changes need to be made as they transition to the biggest stage of all.

Sources say Lee brought in theater mogul Eric Nederlander, who owns a slew of Broadway venues and is interested in bringing in the Tyson show by this summer.

“Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth — Live on Stage” @ MGM Grand was in his own words, Iron Mike tells the troubled and tumultuous story of his journey from Brooklyn — born to a prostitute and a pimp — to wealth in the boxing world, earning untold millions as world heavyweight champion, to a 10-year jail sentence for rape, imprisoned in a mental hospital and finally to poverty: “I was totally broke and destitute.”

The boxing champion, who was the only heavyweight and the first to hold the WBA, WBC and IBF titles simultaneously and earned an astounding $300 million in winnings, admitted: “My whole life was wasted. I was forced to live paycheck to paycheck.”
