Warners In Final Talks For King Richard

Warner Bros. Pictures is reportedly in final negotiations to buy the Will Smith-led “King Richard,” a biopic about the father of tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams.

Zach Baylin penned the spec script for the film which follows Richard Williams who had no tennis background and overcame tremendous hardship, scepticism and his own troubled past to raise two of the game’s greatest players – Serena alone has clocked up twenty-three Grand Slam tournament wins.

Baylin’s script was runner-up on the 2018 Black List. Tim White and Trevor White will produce through their Star Thrower Entertainment company alongside Smith through his Overbrook Entertainment label.
