    EXCLUSIVE: Viola Davis (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, The Suicide Squad) is in talks to star in Two Butterflies, an Amazon drama based on an original idea and script by Evan Dodson, which will be directed by Strong Island‘s Yance Ford.

    Two Butterflies follows two estranged sisters who are torn apart by tragedy and forced to reunite when one sister must be transported to an Alzheimer’s facility. Dodson became the youngest scribe ever to make the Black List of the year’s best unproduced screenplays when his script was selected in 2016.

    Davis and Julius Tennon will produce the upcoming film for JuVee Productions, with Rob Hardy for Rainforest Entertainment.

    Off the top of my head Aunjanue Ellis, Taraji P. Henson, Noma Dumezweni, Kimberly Elise, or Angela Bassett would slay.

    Any of these actresses would KILL

    Oh man, you picked some amazing choices! I never even factored in Taraji! I’m just in awe of how many of her friends/peers she’s yet to work with. Taraji would be a top choice! Hell, they all would KILL!

    IMO Taraji is on Viola’s level as far as talent, but hasn’t had the amount of prestigious opportunities as Viola….so I’d love to see her go head to head with her on screen. It would be amazing!

    You said it! We are long overdue for a shot for them to work together!

    Sequel to Dos Oruguitas. Lin-Manuel Miranda better write the original song.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    Yes, that is quite the list of names. I’m sure Octavia is in the running as well, as I know they’ve been planning to work together again since “The Help”!

    Susan Kelechi Watson would be great as the sister too. Everyone we listed would be 🙂

    The possibilities are pretty great, considering they didn’t specify the ages of the sister’s. So they could go a number of routes, casting wise!
