Will Smith (50) will play Richard Williams, the father of tennis players Venus and Serena Williams, in the new biopic ‘King Richard’. That news became known yesterday. 

‘King Richard’ will show how Williams succeeds in leaving behind his own difficult past and despite all skepticism his daughters start training when they are four years old. Although he had no background in tennis, Venus and Serena grew into the absolute world top, which also became an example for the black community. Venus won 7 grand slam titles, where Serena with 23 grand slams in her name is the greatest player of all time.

More information about the project is not yet known. Will Smith iscurrently working  on ‘Bad Boys for Life’, directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah.
