It will show how the father overcame hardship and skepticism to help turn his daughters into tennis champions.

It is without a doubt that anyone can attest to the 70-year-old's contribution to his daughters careers especially Serena who has gone on to win 23 Grand Slam tournaments. He began giving them tennis lessons and the girls learned the game on cracked, weedy public courts in Compton, reportedly after their father brawled with young toughs who were not fans of the sport and would not make way.

Venus has seven Grand Slam singles titles, with both Serena and Venus also racking up 14 Grand Slam doubles titles. After that victory, Richard shouted "Straight Outta Compton!" It certainly seems in hindsight that a glass ceiling was shattered.

The first trailer for Game of Thrones' final season is officially here
The video ends with an ominous shot of an undead horse traipsing through the snow towards the distant lights of Winterfell . I don't know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so f**king tiring.

According to Deadline, Smith is attached to a spec script from Zach Baylin for King Richard, a film about Richard Williams' life as he raised two of the most accomplished women's tennis players of all-time.

Smith will next be seen in director Guy Ritchie's live-action adaptation of Aladdin, playing the Genie, hitting theaters May 24. The executive producers include Allan Mandelbaum from Star Thrower Entertainment and Caleeb Pinkett from Overbrook Entertainment. He hasn't set his next film, and clearly this is something he's passionate about and it could happen quickly. He has Bad Boys For Life in the works with Martin Lawrence and Bright 2, but beyond those he doesn't have anything on the books past 2020 after pulling out of the Suicide Squad sequel.
