Will Smith portrays Richard Williams – the man behind the success of tennis superstars Venus & Serena Williams
We all know the famous tennis sisters Venus andSerena Williams. But what we don’t know is the story behind their success – about how they became the tennis stars that they are today. Warner Bros. upcoming release, “King Richard”, tells that story and stars everybody’s favourite, Will Smith in the titular role.
Directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green, Richard Williams has a clear vision and a massive 78-page plan to ensure his daughters go down in history. He trains them in abandoned tennis courts – rain or shine – and the girls are shaped by their father’s commitment.
A film that you will need to see to believe, it’s one of the most anticipated films out this year and sees Will Smith in an avatar that we have never seen before. Aunjanue Ellis plays Oracene “Brandy” Williams, Saniyya Sidney stars as Venus Williams, Demi Singleton stars as Serena Williams, with Tony Goldwyn as coach Paul Cohen and Jon Bernthal as coach Rick Macci.
“King Richard” is releasing in UK cinemas from 19thNovember 2021.
