Guadagnino, known for his captivating storytelling, takes a departure from his recent metaphysical and twilight-themed Bones and All (2022), exploring contemporary cann*balism, to present a sports-focused project.

The film stars Zendaya, celebrated for her roles in Spider-Man: No Way Home and Euphoria, as Tashi Duncan, a former tennis prodigy-turned-coach whose past resurfaces dangerously. While the film retains a romantic core, there are hints of thriller and drama elements.

Audiences eagerly await its release as anticipation builds for Challengers, where Guadagnino’s artistic vision and Zendaya’s captivating performance promise an engaging cinematic experience.
