(Web Desk) - Legendary boxer Mike Tyson is all set to play himself in an off-beat superhero movie 'Bunny Man'.

According to Variety, the former heavyweight boxing champion attended a press conference held in the northern city of Turin with Italian producer Andrea Iervolino and writer Enrico Remmert to announce Bunny-Man, which will be entirely shot in Turin.

Bunny-Man involves a multimillionaire superhero who strikes against evil forces in anonymity wearing a rabbit mask, according to a supplied synopsis.

He is driven by the desire to avenge his sister who committed suicide after suffering a violent act, images of which wound up on the internet.

"We are excited to embark on this innovative project, 95 per cent of which will be shot on a virtual set," Iervolino said in a statement. He added that with Bunny-Man "we are redefining the boundaries of cinematographic creativity with the goal of offering the audience a unique experience."

"We are also proud to have a legend like Mike Tyson in our cast, who will certainly help make Bunny-Man even more special," the producer went on to note. No details were provided on Tyson's role.

Tyson previously made appearances as himself in films like The Hangover, The Hangover Part 2.

Further deets about the film's director and the remaining cast have been kept under wraps, reported Variety.
