Samuel Goldwyn Films acquired North American rights to Lila and Eve, the Charles Stone III-directed drama that stars Viola Davis and Jennifer Lopez. The film premiered at Sundance. Pic will be released later this year. Davis plays a grief stricken mother who, in the aftermath of her son’s drive by shooting murder, bonds with a woman (Lopez) who lost her daughter. Fed up with the futility of the justice system, they become vigilantes who go on a killing spree, working through the chain of drug dealers who killed the young man. Shea Whigham, Julius Tennon, Chris Chalk and Andre Royo also star. CAA repped the filmmakers.
