One To Watch: Emma Stone Cast As legendary Tennis Player Billie Jean King in ‘Battle Of The Sexes’

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.

Unfortunately, Sharon Stone feels strongly that shooting in Mississippi is not an option while the law exists. The other producers have chosen to regroup and find another location.”

Also to joining in support are several country artists, who are voice concerns over new anti LGBT bills in Tennessee and South Carolina. Among them: Emmylou Harris, Billy Ray Cyrus and his pop star daughter Miley Cyrus, and actor Chris Carmack of ABC’s Nashville.

And finally, Time are reporting that North Carolina’s new law could cost the state an estimated $567 million, and that corporations are involved in the over bills that affect LGBT people, particularly these so-called “bathroom bills” and religious freedom laws.
