Serena's memoir to hit in 2009, Lifetime made-for-TV movie next

It's official: Grand Central Publishing has won the right to publish Serena Williams' memoir in 2009 after negotiations reportedly reached a top bid of $1.3 million.

Editor Karen Kosztolnyik released the following statement about ReRe:

Serena Williams is one of the world's most remarkable athletes. We've watched her rise to No. 1 despite physical and emotional setbacks, and her hard work and determination have inspired legions of fans young and old. Serena will give her memoir a strong motivational slant.
Word to Ms. Kosztolnyik: make sure to have a ghost writer involved in the process. Why you might ask? Please view Exhibits A, B, and C for your reference. Godspeed.

Word to ReRe: I can't wait for your Lifetime made-for-TV movie. But, who would play you ReRe? Wait - you could!

  1. Angela Bassett. Even though she is 50, she could still play a 27 year-old Serena Williams.

  2. interesting choice killervirgo - i bet she could even pull off the catsuit though i'm not sure i want to see anybody in that thing ever again.

  3. OMG if she stars in it it would be more of an outrageous comedy than an inspirational story. I love Serena but she definitely overacts.

  4. I would love to see JJ audition for this role if ever. Heck, I want her to star as Serena. Haha

  5. Serena is a jerk like his minority-complexed father. You can't buy class.
