Zendaya’s fame has undoubtedly risen since her appearance in the Marvel Spider-Man films alongside Tom Holland. Zendaya has mastered both acting and singing. However, it now appears that she will amaze us with her tennis talents.

Variety reports that for months, the “Euphoria” actress trained for her part as a tennis player-turned-coach in Luca Guadagnino’s upcoming film “Challengers.” “She’s wonderful,” Guadagnino told the outlet Saturday night at the Academy Museum Gala. “I mean, wow. We edited the movie and we almost actually don’t use any of her double. She’s so good.”

The film, which Guadagnino called a “sexy comedy,” follows Zendaya’s character as a love triangle develops while she prepares her player-husband (“West Side Story” actor Mike Faist) for his major match against her ex and his childhood best friend, played by Josh O’Connor (“The Crown”). In June, production was completed. Brad Gilbert, a former professional tennis player, is a consultant on the film.

“They spent like three months working very hard,” Guadagnino said of his leads. “Everybody – technically, athletically.” There has been no news on whether Guadagnino would invite Zendaya to record a song for the soundtrack. “I’m waiting for the score from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross… so we’ll see,” the director said.

“Bones and All,” Guadagnino’s latest film, is a horror love story starring Timothée Chalamet and Taylor Russell as cannibals. In September, the film got an 8.5-minute standing ovation at its Venice Film Festival premiere. “Bones and All” is based on Camille DeAngelis’ novel of the same name.

The script was adapted by David Kajganich, who wrote “Suspiria” for Guadagnino. Mark Rylance, Michael Stuhlbarg, André Holland, Jessica Harper, Chlo Sevigny, Francesca Scorsese, and David Gordon Green are among the supporting actors. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
