Catching up on my emails, I came across a casting notice I received in late December, for an upcoming feature film titled Lila and Eve, which lists Jennifer Lopez and Viola Davis as stars, with Charles Stone III ((Drumline, Paid in Full, Mr. 3000, Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story) directing.
It is described as “Thelma & Louise meets Fight Club.” Interesting mix there, won’t you say? I’m trying to picture what a film with that description would look like; but, color me definitely intrigued! I want to know more, for sure!
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.
If you’re interested in applying for any of the available crew slots, you’re asked to send your resume, and include your desired position in the subject line of your email and send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, I received this in late December, even though I’m only posting it now; so positions may already be filled (My bad!! I get a ton of emails every day).
But at least, we know that there’s something cooking here, with Viola Davis behind it, and maybe in front of it too, alongside Jennifer Lopez, and Charles Stone III directing.
