Liev Schreiber and Susie Abromeit are the latest additions to the forthcoming Warner Bros. picture King Richard. The pair will join Will Smith in the film which tells the story of Richard Williams, the father of tennis icons Venus and Serena Williams who will be played by Saniyya Sidney and Demi Singleton.
The script by Zach Baylin depicts the determination and fortitude of Williams, who trained his two daughters to play tennis, beginning on cracked courts in Compton, California, to later coaching them to Grand Slam wins and shaping them into two of the greatest players in the sport.
Schreiber will play tennis coach Paul Cohen, a noted instructor who worked with John McEnroe and Pete Sampras, among others.
