The project is announced in March 2019, with Will Smith starring as Richard Williams, and Zach Baylin as screenwriter; in the same period, Warner Bros.

was awarded the rights to the film. In June of the same year, Reinaldo Marcus Green was chosen to direct. The sisters Serena and Venus Williams, in more than twenty years, have won 121 singles tournaments, 4 mixed doubles tournaments and have occupied a total of more than 300 weeks at number one in singles and for eight weeks also in the doubles rankings.

After the 2002 French Open, Venus and Serena were number one and two in the singles rankings respectively. Both are part of the small group of tennis players who have won more titles than ever. In the women's doubles, the Williams sisters have won 14 Grand Slam events and on one occasion they have won 4 in a row (from Wimbledon 2009 to Paris 2010), but not in the same calendar year.

The results are not lacking even at the Olympics: they have won a total of four gold medals each, three of which together in the women's doubles and one each in singles. Venus is also the tennis player, including men, with the most Olympic medals won, five.

They have clashed 31 times, including 9 times in a Grand Slam final. It is, therefore, the second couple that have faced each other several times in the women's singles finals behind Chris Evert-Martina Navrátilová, who have competed 14 times.

Serena is ahead in the number of matches won (19-12).
