According to Ebony, actor Will Smith, 50, will star as Richard Williams, father of tennis champions Venus and Serena Williams, in an upcoming biopic titled “King Richard”.

While raising his family in Compton, California, Williams drafted a 78-page plan for his daughters’ professional careers as tennis players, reported Ebony.

According to Variety, 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 four years old on the tennis court despite not having a background in tennis.
