Will Ferrell to Star in "Match Maker" Drama, About Tennis' 1973 Battle of the Sexes

Posted: April 4th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Will Ferrell to Star in "Match Maker" Drama, About TennisSubmit Comment
Will Ferrell already starred in movies about basketball and soccer, and has now signed on to take the lead in a tennis drama, called "Match Makers," about tennis' legendary battle of the sexes match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs.

Based on Don Van Natta Jr's ESPN.com article, "The Match Maker: Bobby Riggs, the Mafia and the Battle of the Sexes," the story follows the high profile rivalry between the two tennis pros and their iconic 1973 tennis match. The match was watched by 50 million Americans, who tuned in to see whether a 29-year-old female King could beat the retired 55-year-old Riggs.

The new movie will be written by Steve Conrad (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, The Pursuit of Happyness).

^Did you read the f*cking headline? It's a DRAMA you ball-sniffing illiterate twit!

No I didn't read you yappy dog you. I only saw his picture and automatically thought to be a comedy.

As a drama then this will not be worth it. Not even as download material.

And stop licking your balls you disgusting miserable prick!
