Warner Bros. is in final negotiations to buy “King Richard,” a movie starring Will Smith that centers on the father of tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams, sources tell Variety.

The studio had no comment.

 

The film, based on a script by Zach Baylin, will center on Richard Williams overcoming hardship, skepticism, controversy, and his own troubled past to instruct his daughters, starting when they were 4 years old on the tennis courts of Compton, Calif. — despite not having a background in tennis. Baylin’s script was runner-up on the 2018 Black List.

 

Serena Williams has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles, starting with the US Open in 1999. Venus Williams has seven Grand Slam singles, starting with Wimbledon in 2000. The sisters have combined for 14 Grand Slam doubles championships.

 

Tim and Trevor White will produce under their Star Thrower Entertainment banner, which has backed “The Post,” “Wind River,” and “Ingrid Goes West.” Smith will also produce under his Overbrook Entertainment company. The executive producers include Allan Mandelbaum from Star Thrower Entertainment and Caleeb Pinkett from Overbrook Entertainment. The co-producers include Mary Solomon and Rick Rickertsen.

it's set for Nov 25 so Will is definitely coming for the wigs. :stirthepot:

his comeback has started so well with the Aladdin hit.  Next Gemini Man and Bad Boys. I think they both have potential

I'm always for Smithaissance. His performance in I Am Legend is GOAT.

This can be a great film, and it can be up for a variety of Oscars. Blacklisted scripts are very strong in the majority of the times they are adapted to the screen.

 

Plus, the timing is great, because tennis is getting more exciting with the amount of new players coming into the scene.
