Viola Davis and Jennifer Lopez star in “Lila & Eve,” the “Thelma & Louise”-esque drama-thriller from director Charles Stone III, which also features Shea Whigham, Julius Tennon, Ron Caldwell, and Aml Ameen in front of the camera.
The story follows Lila (Davis), a grief-stricken mother reeling from her son’s murder, who attends a support group where she meets Eve (Lopez), who urges her to take matters into her own hands to track down her son’s killers. They pair then embark on a journey of sweet revenge.
ChickFlick Productions and JuVee Productions are producers on the film – JuVee Productions is Viola Davis’ production company, which she co-founded with her husband Julius Tennon.
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 done in this case.
A first clip from the film has been released by distributor Samuel Goldwyn Films and is embedded below (release date set for July 17):
