Viola Davis gets a movie, with Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler

Posted on

Someone was listening to Meryl Streep’s acceptance speech at the SAG Awards, when she told somebody to give her Doubt costar and fellow Oscar nominee Viola Davis a movie. Davis has joined the cast of Law Abiding Citizen, now shooting in Philadelphia, Variety reports. Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler star in the film, which is said to center on a man seeking justice from the assistant district attorney who prosecuted (we’re guessing, poorly) the killers of his murdered wife and daughter years earlier.
