We just learned that Will Smith is onto another project! Smith, who just recently filmed the live adaption version of Aladdin and is in the middle of filming Bad Boys for Life has just landed another role in a film titled, King Richard.

Deadline reported that Tim and Trevor White and Will Smith will produce the movie. King Richard will take its audience on a journey through Serena and Venus Williams’ dad, Richard Williams.

It will revolve around Richard’s hardship and instructing both Serena and Venus on the courts since they were as young as four years old. Though Richard did not have a background in tennis, he practiced and taught his daughter the game.

Serena Williams has won 23 Grand Slam single titles including the US Open in 1999. Venus has won seven Grand Slam single titles including Wimbledon in 2000. Together, the two have 14 Grand Slam double championships.
