Hey I don't know if there's been talk of this movie in any of your countries, but I saw on the BBC like a 5 second clip from an upcoming movie called Wimbledon featuring Kirsten Dunst.... She was playing tennis in it... :confused: Anyone know if the movie will be about the tennis or if the tennis is just like... the background for the story (probably the latter?? :( :sad: ) BBC's Jonathan Ross -or should I say "Woss" :lol:- DID say it's a "tennis-movie" but yeh what does that really mean..

Ah I found out what it's about if anyone is interested:

Director: Richard Loncraine
Written By: Jennifer Flackett, Mark Levin, Adam Brooks
Distributed by: Universal Pictures
Theatrical Release Date: September 24, 2004

Peter Colt (Bettany) is an unlucky guy, scoring "love" both professionally and personally. Seeded near the bottom of the world tennis ranks, he manages to score a wild card, allowing him to play in the prestigious Wimbledon tournament. There, he meets and falls in love with American tennis star Lizzie Bradbury (Dunst). Fueled by a mixture of his newfound luck, love and on-court prowess, Peter works his way up the ranks of the tournament players and actually stands a chance of fulfilling his lifelong dream of winning the men's singles title--if his luck can just hold out.

Cast:
Kirsten Dunst, Paul Bettany, Sam Neill, Jon Favreau


I hope they'll do a good job on showing what tennis is about (for ppl who aren't familiar with the game)and all... and I wonder how much tennis there'll be in it too! *SO CURIOUS*
