    Shooting starts in April, and it looks like the other 2 Widow’s roles are being finalized.

    I hope she is still filming the Rachel Dupree film next year with Mahershala Ali. That film sounded beautiful

    Next year as in 2018? I think it’s going to be shot this year, based off what i’m hearing. But, it definitely looks like Widows is first.

    I meant this year. I don’t when she would be able to squeeze the filming in for Rachel Dupree…..with HTGAWM filming too.

    Rachel Dupree definitely sounds more interesting of the two

    Exactly, you raise an excellent point. If scheduling for Widows goes according as planned, and starts shooting in April, right after that, assuming HTGAWM gets the green light for a fourth season, (and no doubt, it will), she will have very little time after production wraps on Widows before she starts shooting her emmy-winning tv role again.

    I think they both sound great.

    I don’t see Murder lasting more than five seasons. Davis only used it as a means of building greater public awareness for herself. To leverage a viable film career. You’d think two Oscar nominations would be enough but she has to play the game best she can with the cards she was dealt.

    I really want to see her work with Steve McQueen. What will he get out of her we have yet to see?

    It probably won’t last more than 5 seasons, which would be quite smart on her behalf, because it will likely ensure syndication rights, as well. It was quite smart on her behalf for more reasons than one to land Annalise Keating, and catapult her to stardom!

    I think it’s yet another smart move to work with Academy-Award winner Steve McQueen, because he will unleash another contemporary strong female, in a lead role, taking no prisoners.

    Loving the casting so far. They do need to get an A Lister in there for one of the roles though. Hopefully someone like Charlize.

    Also saw today that Viola’s movie Custody is airing on Lifetime in March.

    It seems a lot of Viola’s projects get announced early and than you don’t hear about them for a while. The Barbara Jordan and Harriet Tubman projects were announced years ago and still no timetable to when they will get filmed. She said on Tapley’s on podcast they don’t even have a script yet for Tubman so that won’t be happening for a while. Jordan is listed as a 2018 release on Juvee so hopefully that gets filming this year.

    I hope she gets Dupree and Widows filmed before Murder starts up again in August. Dupree is listed as a 2017 release so it has to be filming soon? And I hope she goes no more than 5 seasons of Murder. In todays TV world interest and buzz and awards attention for a show fades very quickly. The show has served its purpose and increased her stardom. But she needs to hit the ground running and take advantage of that Oscar win and the show takes up too much time. She has had to miss several screenings of Fences due to filming Murder.

    Yes. Although HTGAWM gives her almost everything she can chew on as an actress……I want her to continue to build up a great resume on film.

    Man I don’t know how much that means. That Barbara Jordan biopic has had more different dates on Juvee than Match.com. I won’t believe that should be amazing project will ever come to fruition until I see pictures of her as Barbara on the set. lbvs

    As far as The Personal History of Rachel Dupree, I don’t know how she’ll manage to finish it and Widows this year. HTGAWM takes up a great deal of her time. Understandably though why she’s sticking to it, as it’s literally her bread & butter… and tea!
