Ang Lee's next a 3D film on boxing battles between Ali-Frazier

That will include the showdown between Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali that was called the Thrilla In Manila.

Peter Morgan will write the script. The movie will have a narrative that connects the 3D depiction of some of boxing's great fights, and Lee will produce the film with his longtime producing partner James Schamus, reported Deadline.
