Skarsgard In Talks For “Borg vs. Monroe”

Stellan Skarsgard and Sverrir Gudnasson are in talks to join “Armadillo” director and “True Detective” executive producer Janus Metz Pederson’s “Borg Vs. McEnroe” for Tre Vanner and SF Studios.

The story follows one of sport’s most famed rivalries which re-creates the intense professional enmity between the controlled and cool Swedish tennis icon Bjorn Borg and American enfant terrible John McEnroe.

Their 1980 match in the final of Wimbledon is widely considered one of the greatest tennis matches in the history of the sport. Producers are seeking the help of Shia LaBeouf for the role of the foul-mouthed, perm-haired McEnroe.
