Tennis has struggled to inspire the world of film to this point, with the Kirsten Dunst stinker "Wimbledon" serving as its best big-budget flick to date.
But the sport is getting a comedic treatment from Andy Samberg and Kit Harrington, who star in a new HBO sports comedy titled "7 Days In Hell."
The premise for the movie -- an epic tennis match that spans seven days and destroys both players in the process -- actually recalls the legendary three-day marathon match between Nicolas Mahut and John Isner, who played the fifth set to an unbelievable 70-68 final score.
The movie is shot in a faux-documentary style:
Samberg is well-known for his comedic performances on "Saturday Night Live" and, more recently, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." Harrington, meanwhile, is a cast member from "Game of Thrones."
But those two are hardly the most notable names appearing in the movie. Former SNL castmember Will Forte, along with Lena Dunham, also have significant roles in the movie. A number of tennis stars, including Serena Williams, John McEnroe and Chris Evert, appear throughout.
Samberg's style in the movie recalls a young Andre Agassi -- the big-hair Agassi years, that is. Who will win the match? We'll find out when the movie premieres July 11.
