LeBron James is set to tell the story of The Greatest who died on June 3 at the age of 74.
The Cleveland Cavaliers star will be the executive producer of an HBO documentary on Muhammad Ali, who died earlier this year.
“It’s tough to put into words how much it means to me to be a part of this project honouring the legacy and telling the extremely important story of the great Muhammad Ali,” James said.
HBO says the documentary, which will combine archival footage and cinematic reactions, will “explore Ali’s greatest triumphs and comebacks, painting an intimate portrait of a man who, against all odds, dreamed and achieved the impossible, over and over again.”
“This documentary will have national and global appeal,” she said.
“I’m hopeful this documentary will engage the audience in a similar way Muhammad engaged his audience and fans.”
