Jennifer Lopez is heading to a local support group…
The 44-year-old Puerto Rican singer, actress and American Idol judge has signed on to star opposite Viola Davis in Lila and Eve.
The independent film, from A+E Networks’ Lifetime Films and A+E Studios, centers on a grief-stricken mother (Davis), who in the aftermath of her son’s murder in a drive-by shooting, attends a support group where she meets Eve (Lopez), who has lost her daughter. The two women soon embark on a killing spree of their own, as they work to the top of the chain of drug dealers to avenge the murder of Lila’s son.
Shea Whigham portrays Detective Holliston, who is investigating Lila and Eve’s crimes.
Directed by Charles Stone III from a script by Pat Gilfillan, Lila And Eve is now filming for a festival premiere and theatrical release in late 2014/early 2015.
