Will Smith to Play Serena Williams' Father in 'King Richard

 

In the forthcoming film ‘King Richard’, Will Smith is portraying the father of the iconic tennis players, Venus Williams and Serena Williams. Based on a true story, the movie is scheduled to hit the theatres in November. Having introduced tennis to his daughters, Venus and Serena, when they were four and five, respectively, the movie traces the journey of Richard in raising two of the greatest athletes of all time.

 

 

 

As per reports, the four-time Grammy award winner, Will Smith, was paid a whopping $40 million for the upcoming biographical drama film. During her 25-year-long illustrious career, Serena has amassed $94 million in career prize money. On the other side, her elder sister, Venus, has won $42 million over her impeccable career.

Just for comparison, the $40 million pay cheque received by the Hollywood star, for just one film, is almost half of Serena’s on-court career prize earnings. Incredible indeed! Last month, Smith uploaded the trailer of the movie on his YouTube channel. However, this isn’t the first time Smith is playing the protagonist in a biographical movie.

 

 

Previously, Smith has essayed the role of the legendary boxer, Muhammad Ali, in the film ‘Ali’ and an American entrepreneur, Chris Gardner, in the film ‘Pursuit of Happiness, receiving critical acclaim for both performances.
