Viola Davis & Lupita Nyong’o Team Up For African Adventure Movie

Viola Davis and Lupita Nyong’o side by side in the same movie?

It’s happening.

 

Awesome news below…

The African stars are to join forces to create ‘The Woman King‘, a movie based on the true story of a mother and daughter duo who fought the French to protect their people from the horrors of slavery.

Producing the project? Davis’ JuVee Productions (co-founded by her husband Julius and also home to ‘Lila and Eve’) and Cathy Schulman of Welle Entertainment.

She told ‘Deadline’….

Black Panther just showed us how the power of imagination and lore could reveal a world without gender and racial stereotypes. The Woman Kingwill tell one of history’s greatest forgotten stories from the real world in which we live, where an army of African warrior women staved off slavery, colonialism and inter-tribal warfare to unify a nation.
