One Twitter user reacted to news of Smith playing Williams by asking: "Why is there a movie called King Richard but not a movie called Queen Serena or Queen Venus?". That is not quite what is happening though with tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams whose biopic about their life will instead focus mostly on their father, Richard Williams.

Will Smith has reportedly signed on to play the role of Serena and Venus Williams' father and tennis coach, Richard Williams, in an upcoming film titled, "King Richard". It will be interesting to see the portrayal of Richard Williams by Smith and what involvement the Williams sisters will have with the movie, if any at all.

Tim White and Travor White will be the producers of the film through the company Star Thrower Entertainment, who already put their stamp on quality works such as The Post, Wind River e Ingrid Goes West, while Smith will also act as producer through his company Overbrook Entertainment.

He started giving them lessons when they were just four-years-old and is largely credited with helping them become the most famous tennis players in history.

Smith will next star in the Disney live-action remake of Aladdin.

Smith is now filming the highly-anticipated Bad Boys For Life with Martin Lawrence, and he is also attached to return for a sequel to Netflix's Bright.
