BOTS_2016Screen shot 2016-04-13 at 4.18.26 PMFox Searchlight is makingĀ Battle of the Sexes, the screen adaptation of the famous face-off between male chauvinist tennis hustler Bobby Riggs and world champ (and secretly lesbian) Billie Jean King in Houston. A TV version with Holly Hunter has already been aired, but this new version features Steve Carell as Riggs and Emma Stone as King. The film has just started shooting, and we have this photo …. which we will compare with an actual picture from 1973. Wow!
