Emma Stone has been cast in Battle of the Sexes. Check out the news below!
Emma Stone has closed a deal to play tennis pro Billie Jean King in Fox Searchlight’s “Battle of the Sexes,” sources tell Variety.
Steve Carell is currently set to play Bobby Riggs in the sports drama.
Although Stone has been the top contender for the role for some time, earlier in the year, her busy schedule came close to derailing the deal — to the point where Searchlight began courting Brie Larson to play King instead. Stone’s schedule has now been worked out to allow her to star in “Battle of the Sexes,” while Larson has moved on to Lionsgate’s “The Glass Castle.”
