Viola Davis Has Been Cast In Thriller Prisoners

by on November 12, 2012

Viola Davis has been cast in upcoming thriller Prisoners, expected in 2013 .

Davis’ latest film, Won’t Back Down, set a record for  worst opening of a film that appeared in more than 2,500 theaters.

But this film stars Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal,  Melissa Leo, Maria Belloand Paul Dano. It’s a surefire hit.

Coincidentally Won’t Back Down starred Maggie Gyllenhall, sister to Jake, who will be her co-star in Prisoners.

According to Collider in the film Prisoners:

Jackman stars as a small-town carpenter by the name of Keller whose young daughter and her best friend are kidnapped.  Keller takes the case into his own hands when the police fail to find them, but runs up against Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal), a top cop with an over-inflated ego.

It’s great to see that Davis has a role in what’s sure to be a successful film do to a fine cast, but it’s a bit disheartening her incredible performance in Won’t Back Down was under appreciated.

What do those of you who have seen Davis’ performances think?
