2 updates to my January 8 post announcing an upcoming feature film titled Lila and Eve
, which Jennifer Lopez
and Viola Davis
are attached to star in, with Charles Stone III
, Paid in Full
, Mr. 3000
, Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story
The story, described as "Thelma & Louise meets Fight Club," will follow two distraught mothers who team up to avenge the death of their children after authorities are unable to find their murderers.
The first update: Aml Ameen
has joined the cast to play Viola Davis' son. The actor made the announcement via his Twitter page
And the second update: The Wrap
is reporting that Yolonda Ross
has also joined the cast, to play "a member of a “Mothers of Lost Children” support group, which helps women who have lost children to violence."
and JuVee Productions
are listed as producers on the film - JuVee Productions
is Viola Davis' production company, which she co-founded with her husband Julius Tennon
Production for the film starts this month, with a 2015 release date listed.
You'll recall when Davis launched JuVee Productions a couple of years ago, with the intent being to create and produce projects for herself, which is essentially what she's likely doing here.
This should be interesting.
