American actress Zendaya, a Golden Globe winner, is set to take the film industry by storm this year. In Luca Guadagnino’s upcoming film “Challengers,” she plays the lead role.

Brad Gilbert, Andre Agassi’s former coach, is reportedly a consultant on the movie, according to Sportsskeeda. He allegedly gave Zendaya lessons and helped her get ready for her tennis career for three months.

Luca Guadagnino, the film’s director, gave the cast high marks in an interview with Variety. He gave them credit for putting in a lot of effort to improve their tennis talents while working closely with Brad Gilbert. Concerning the trio of performers, Zendaya, O’Connor, and Faist, Luca stated,

“They spent like three months working very hard. Everybody—technically, athletically.”

He complimented Zendaya on her performance and stated that she had it down pat and didn’t really require a body duplicate.

“She’s wonderful; I mean, wow. We edited the movie, and we almost actually don’t use any of her doubles. She’s so good.”

On her Instagram page, Zen revealed the movie’s release date. She posted the movie poster and penned,

“Challengers April 26th, Wishing you all the most beautiful new year ✨,”

It got reactions from Serena Williams, who wrote, “So excited for this!!!!!” and Coco Gauff, “😍 can’t wait.”
