Actor Reese Witherspoon will produce a documentary about lesbian tennis legend Martina Navratilova.

Witherspoon will do the production through her company Hello Sunshine, according to PinkNews. Out journalist Glenn Greenwald and Suzanne Gilbert will both also be involved with the production of the film.

“The issues raised by Martina’s legacy resonate now more than ever, which is why it’s so important to tell her story to new generations of engaged young people who may not be aware of the vital role she played in shaping expectations around female identity and LGBT equality,” head of digital media and programming for Hello Sunshine Charlotte Koh said.

According to Variety, the film will cover Navratilova through the eyes of Greenwald as he grew up in a Ronald Reagan-era Florida watching her play.
