*Viola Davis has squeezed yet another project onto her busy slate.
The star of ABC’s “How to Get Away With Murder” and the upcoming Harriet Tubman biopic for HBO is also a go for the film “Custody,” a courtroom drama from “Into the Woods” writer James Lapine.
Ellen Burstyn, “Nashville” star Hayden Panettiere and Oscar nominee Catalina Sandino Moreno are co-starring in the film exploring the lives of three New York City women, each from different socio-economic backgrounds whose lives unexpectedly intersect at New York Family Court.
Tony Shalhoub, Raul Esparza and Dan Fogler also co-star in the project from Lucky Monkey Pictures.
Production will begin later this week in New York City.
Davis will also have a supporting role in the DC comic adaptation “Suicide Squad.”
