Emma Stone and Steve Carrell are currently filming "Battle of the Sexes," a movie based on the incredible 1973 tennis match in which the No. 2 ranked Billie Jean King famously defeated former Wimbledon champion Bobby Riggs.

The first official photo for the movie is out, and one thing is clear: Emma Stone is Billie Jean King reincarnated. Carrell is convincing enough as Riggs, but just look at Stone:

You're excused if you suddenly think it's 1973 all over again. 

King tweeted out the original photo of herself and Riggs at a press event along with the new picture of Stone and Carrell. It's clear King and Stone are the perfect match (heh). 

The biopic, directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, is slated to hit theaters sometime in 2017 as filming just began. According to Variety, this is one of three projects in the works based on the famous tennis match.
