King Richard

Venus, Serena and a plan for greatness

Based on the true story that will inspire the world, Warner Bros Pictures’ King Richard follows the journey of Richard Williams, an undeterred father instrumental in raising two of the most extraordinarily gifted athletes of all time, who will end up changing the sport of tennis forever.

Two-time Oscar nominee Will Smith ( Ali, The Pursuit of Happyness, Bad Boys for Life) stars as Richard, under the direction of Reinaldo Marcus Green ( Monsters and Men).

Driven by a clear vision of their future and using unconventional methods, Richard has a plan that will take Venus and Serena Williams from the streets of Compton, California, to the global stage as legendary icons. The profoundly moving film shows the power of family, perseverance and unwavering belief as a means to achieve the impossible and impact the world.

Aunjanue Ellis ( If Beale Street Could Talk, TV’s Quantico) plays the girls’ mom, Oracene ‘Brandi’ Williams; Saniyya Sidney ( Hidden Figures, Fences) stars as Venus Williams; Demi Singleton (TV’s Godfather of Harlem) stars as Serena Williams, with Tony Goldwyn (the Divergent series, TV’s Scandal) as coach Paul Cohen and Jon Bernthal (upcoming The Many Saints of Newark, Ford v Ferrari) as coach Rick Macci. The ensemble also includes Andy Bean ( IT Chapter Two), Kevin Dunn (the Transformers films, HBO’s Veep) and Craig Tate ( Greyhound).

Green directed King Richard from a screenplay written by Zach Baylin. The producers were Tim White and Trevor White under their Star Thrower Entertainment banner, and Will Smith under his Westbrook banner. Isha Price, Serena Williams, Venus Williams, James Lassiter, Jada Pinkett Smith, Adam Merims, Lynn Harris, Allan Mandelbaum, Jon Mone and Peter Dodd served as the executive producers.

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes Oscar-winning director of photography Robert Elswit ( There Will Be Blood), production designers Wynn Thomas ( Da 5 Bloods, Hidden Figures) and William Arnold ( The Hate U Give), Oscar-nominated editor Pamela Martin ( The Fighter), and two-time Oscar-nominated costume designer Sharen Davis ( Dreamgirls, Ray). The music is by Oscar-nominated composer Kris Bowers ( Space Jam: A New Legacy, A Concerto is a Conversation).

King Richard is a Warner Bros Pictures Presentation, a Star Thrower Entertainment Production, a Westbrook Production and a Keepin’ It Reel Production.
