Viola Davis is no stranger when it comes to August Wilson productions, you know this! Davis won a Tony Award for her role in the revival of Fences on Broadway.

Well, another one of August Wilson’s award-winning plays ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’ is being made into a feature film! We just learned that actors Viola Davis, Chadwick Boseman, Glynn Turman, Colman Domingo, and Michael Potts are all set to appear on in the film.

Producers of the film include Academy Award-winning actor, Denzel Washington, Todd Black, and Dany Wolf.

Join in as Ma Rainey takes you along the journey of becoming the Queen of the Blues. It will tell her story of making a record in Chicago of 1927 as her tensions boil between her white agent, producer, and bandmates.
