Ali (2001 movie)

Ali is a 2001 biographical film which tells the story of boxer Muhammad Ali. It stars Will Smith, Jamie Foxx[?], Jon Voight, Mario Van Peebles[?], Ron Silver[?], Jeffrey Wright[?], Mykelti Williamson[?], Jada Pinkett Smith, Joe Morton[?], Giancarlo Esposito[?] and LeVar Burton.

The movie was written by Gregory Allen Howard[?], Stephen J. Rivele[?], Christopher Wilkinson[?], Eric Roth[?] and Michael Mann. It was directed by Mann.

It was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Actor in a Leading Role (Will Smith) and Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Jon Voight).

The original script by Howard and Rivele was too long and unwieldy, and was significantly modified by Roth and Mann. Howard was originally commissioned to write an Ali script by producer Jon Peters[?] in 1994, but it was never produced.
