With Battle of the Sexes set to hit theaters this Fall, another great tennis rivalry biopic will be hitting the big screen around the same time as well. Starring Shia LaBeouf and Sverrir Gudnason, Borg vs McEnroe centers on Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe’s rivalry during the 1980 Wimbledon tournament. The inclusion of LaBeouf is brilliant stunt casting, and the trailer suggests it’ll be a pretty intense film.
Borg vs McEnroe hits theaters in Sweden on September 15th, 2017. No word yet on a U.S. release date.
