Will Smith's new movie King Richard is now casting

Will Smith's new movie King Richard is now casting and hiring actors to appear in the upcoming feature film. Casting directors in Los Angeles, California are currently looking for teen athletes to appear in the movie.

“King Richard” is written by Zach Baylin and the movie’s plot will center around the story of Richard Williams’ life and the obstacles he overcame, which led him to teach his daughters tennis when they were four years old. Without a background in the sport, Williams trained the girls in their hometown of Compton, California, setting them to change the game forever. Serena has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles; Venus has won seven, and the two sisters combined have won 14 Grand Slam doubles championships.

The movie will be produced by Tim and Trevor White’s Star Thrower Entertainment company, which is known for “The Post” and “Wind River.” Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment will also produce the project.
