Viola Davis Will Be Channeling Her Inner Shirley Chisholm in Upcoming Film

in Celebrity/Entertainment by

When you are making a film about Shirley Chisholm, you are making a film about a black woman icon who was not afraid to see her own power and go for what she wanted. It only makes sense to cast an actress that has the teeth to make us feel that pride, power and persona onscreen.

Amazon Studios has acquired the rights to The Fighting Shirley Chisholm, and they have announced that Oscar, Golden Globe, Tony and Emmy Award-winning actress Viola Davis will not only star in the title role, but help produce the film as well.
