Antoine Fuqua (The Magnificent Seven) will direct a Muhammad Ali documentary that will air on HBO.

The multi-part documentary will be produced by Lebron James and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill Entertainment. “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,” Lebron said in a statement. “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. It’s important that his story continues for generations to come, and it’s an honor for SpringHill Entertainment and me to be a part of this.”

According to Deadline.com, the documentary has the approval and full participation of the Ali family estate.

Muhammad Ali was a professional boxer and activist. He was widely regarded as one of the most significant and celebrated sports figures, and one of the leading heavyweight boxers of the 20th century. After suffering from Parkinson’s syndrome Ali died last June at the age of 74 from septic shock. His impact on the world will last for years and years to come.
