Emma Stone’s casting as legendary tennis player Billie Jean King may have caused some head scratching, but this biopic comedy from Little Miss Sunshine duo Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton is piquing interest regardless.

With Steve Carrell as Bobby Riggs, the movie tells the knockout story of the infamous 1973 tennis match between the misogynistic huckster and the then-closeted trailblazer.

With a script by Slumdog Millionaire scribe Simon Beaufoy, the supporting cast includes out favorites Alan Cumming and Natalie Morales, as well as Sarah Silverman, Elisabeth Shue, and Andrea Riseborough.

If Battle of the Sexes ends up being a return to form for Faris and Dayton, it could be one of the fall’s biggest hits.
