Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis will team up for Still I Rise
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis are set to star in the Daniel Barnz directed drama STILL I RISE. The story follows two mothers who join forces to transform an inner city school. This is one of those films that you have seen in one form or another, but with these two talented ladies on board it has potential to be something special and interesting. The film is being produced by Walden Media which is a company that tends to be more into the films with family values which may not bode well for some movies, but should work in this particular instance. Distributing rights have been picked up by 20th Century Fox and shooting is set to start in the next few weeks. Chances are we may see this film either late this year or early next.
