Will Smith To Star As Venus & Serena’s Father Richard Williams In New Movie

Don Cheadle reacts to rumors he's replacing Smith in 'Suicide Squad 2.'

(AllHipHop News) Another biopic is in the works. An upcoming movie will tell the story of Richard Williams, the father and former coach of sports legends Venus and Serena Williams.

According to Deadline, Will Smith is set to play the outspoken Williams in the motion picture tentatively titled King Richard. The Shreveport, Louisiana native raised his two future tennis champions in Compton, California.

Smith will next be seen in Disney's live-action remake of Aladdin which is scheduled for release on March 24. The rapper-turned-actor is currently shooting Bad Boys For Life with Martin Lawrence.

News recently broke that Will Smith will not be returning as Deadshot in the Suicide Squad sequel. Yesterday, Avengers: Infinity War cast member Don Cheadle had a playful response to rumors he was taking over the role of Deadshot.
