Emma Stone Closes Deal for Battle of the Sexes

Emma Stone has closed a deal to play tennis pro Billie Jean King in Fox Searchlight’s “Battle of the Sexes” opposite Steve Carell in the role of Bobby Riggs. The competition between King and Riggs captured the zeitgeist back in 1973, when at 29, the No. 2 ranked King beat the 55-year-old retired former Wimbledon champion Riggs. #EntertainmentBiz
