Wil's Ali Biopic Back On

LATEST: WILL SMITH's troubled movie based on legendary boxer MUHAMMAD ALI is back, after resolving talk this weekend (21OCT00).

After more than a week of doubt about the movie over budget worries, SONY is said to have accepted new proposals satisfying executives that it can be made within its estimated $105 million (70 million) budget.

Now, ALI is set to begin filming in January (01). It's understood Will and director MICHAEL MANN have taken reduced fees to get the movie done within its budget. (RGS/WNWPO)
