Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired North American rights to Charles Stone III’s “Lila and Eve,” starring Viola Davis and Jennifer Lopez.

The film premiered last month at the Sundance Film Festival. Davis and Lopez both first appeared onscreen together in 1998’s “Out of Sight.”

Goldwyn plans a 2015 release.

Davis portrays Lila, a grief-stricken mother whose son is murdered in a drive-by shooting and meets Eve (Lopez), who has lost her daughter, while attending a support group. Frustrated by the inability of law enforcement to bring the killer to justice, the two women embark on a killing spree against a chain of drug dealers to avenge the murder.

The movie also stars Shea Whigham, Julius Tennon, Chris Chalk and Andre Royo.

“Lila and Eve” is a Lifetime Films presentation. Production companies are A+E Studios, Chickflicks and JuVee Productions. Producers are Sara Risher and Darrin Reed; executive producers include Viola Davis, »
