Zendaya and Luca Guadagnino will join forces for Challengers , a new film that will be produced by MGM.
It is a project based on a screenplay written by Justin Kuritzkes, which ended up in the Black List in 2021, that is, the list of the best scripts that had not yet been transformed into films. Alongside Zendaya we will also find Mike Faist and Josh O’Connor in the cast , this if the negotiations, currently underway, are successful.
The story of the film
Challengers will tell the story of Tashi (Zendaya), a tennis player turned manager who transformed her husband Art into a world-famous player. Things start to go wrong for Art and she decides to place him in a Challenger event, which is part of the lower tier of the pro tour. There she will have to face her former best friend as well as his wife’s ex-partner.
Before Bones & All
We recall that Luca Guadagnino is currently busy with the post-production of Bones & All , which stars Timothée Chalamet , already seen in Call me by your name .
