What do we know about Challengers?
Zendaya plays Tashi Duncan in Challengers. She is a force to be reckoned with—a former tennis prodigy turned coach who never backs down from a challenge, both on and off the court. Married to a losing champion (Mike Faist from West Side Story), Tashi's plan for her husband's redemption takes an unexpected turn when he has to compete against the disgraced Patrick (Josh O'Connor from The Crown), who used to be both Tashi's ex-boyfriend and best friend.
Tashi must face her past and consider the price of victory as the two men in her life compete against one another, both on and off the court.
Pro tennis coach and former player Brad Gilbert trained Zendaya for her role in Challengers. He also serves as a consultant on the film. Alongside director Guadagnino, the movie has Bernard Bellew, Kevin Ulrich, and Spider-Man: No Way Home producer Amy Pascal as producers. The MGM production, Challengers will have its theatrical debut on April 26.
