Serena Williams and Venus Williams are undoubtedly one of the best female tennis players. They have even won many Wimbledon trophies and many tournament trophies. But behind their success, the person who is responsible is none other than their coach, their father man, Richard Williams. After the speculation of the movie, King Richard, TW3 Entertainment and Power Move Media are thoroughly disappointed as they bought in the rights for his life story.
They bagged in the rights :
TW3 Entertainment and Power Move Media have approached Richard Williams’s son, Chavoita Lesane, in 2017. They have bought in the complete rights of his life story to make a film. Even they bagged in the rights for Black and White: The Way I See It, his memoir. TW3 Entertainment and Power Move Media have given $ 10,000 for the rights.
They were a lot excited and amazed by his inspirational story. His journey of countless hurdles and the way he brought up his daughters into the light as champions are amazing. So they felt it would be a great biopic to inject into the audience. So they bagged in the rights by approaching his son.
Sued Warner Bros and Will Smith :
But to their surprise, many have later shown interest in the Williams movie. Firstly Star Thrower Entertainment has shown keen interest in this project. Then TW3 Entertainment and Power Move Media have sent an order to Star Thrower that they possess the rights for the Williams movie.
Then Warner Bros. came into the picture. Firstly they thought of making the movie, but later they disagreed as they had no room for biopics. But now they are planning to make the movie King Richard in which the story of his life is going to be adapted in some or the other form.
Moreover, Will Smith’s Overbrook production also has a part of its participation in the making of the movie King Richard. Though after knowing that the rights for William Richard’s life is with TW3 Entertainment and Power Move Media, both Warner Bros. and representatives of Will Smith fail to respond.
So TW3 Entertainment and Power Move Media are currently suing Lesane, Star Thrower Entertainments, Warner Bros., and Will Smith’s production for their intentional interference over the story for which they already buy rights.
