Will Smith is getting in character on set of his new movie!

The 52-year-old actor sported a track jacket and short-shorts while filming the upcoming Richard Williams biopic titled King Richard on Monday afternoon (October 19) in Los Angeles.

The upcoming movie about Serena and Venus Williams‘ dad depicts how Richard, with no tennis background, overcame tremendous hardship and drew up at a 78-page plan for the girls’ professional tennis careers when they were just children.

Liev Schreiber was supposed to tennis coach Paul Cohen in the movie, but was recently replaced by this actor.

The cast also includes Jon Bernthal, Aunjanue Ellis, Saniyya Sidney, and Demi Singleton.

As of right now, King Richard is set to be released on November 19, 2021.
