The tennis flick — set to hit theaters some time in 2017 — recounts the historic match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, at the time the host viewed sporting event in television history.

But it will also delve deeper into the athletes’ personal lives:

“King and Riggs were on opposites sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. With a supportive husband urging her to fight the establishment for equal pay, the fiercely private King was also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, while Riggs gambled his legacy and reputation in a bid to relieve the glories of his past.”

Sounds like a pretty great movie!

And with a cast including Sarah Silverman, Alan Cumming, Andrea Risenborough, Eric Christian Olsen, Natalie Morales, and Elisabeth Shue, we’ve never been so invested in a tennis match!
