Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis to Star in Still I Rise

viola-davis-120.jpgMaggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis are slated to star in Still I Rise, a drama about two frustrated women who seek to transform an inner-city school. Just yesterday, I suggested Viola Davis join some female-centric movies, and this is pretty much a match. I am always weaving cinematic futures here at Movieline. Always! Remember when I told Ellen Page to join a Woody Allen movie? Done. I ain't Sister Aloysius, Viola -- I have no Doubt. [Deadline]

    But you do have your certainty, don't you Mr. Virtel?

    Is the world really clammoring for another save-an-inner-city-school drama? Truly, is ther anything left to mine that "Lean On Me", "Stand And Deliver" "Dangerous Minds", "Freedom Writers", "To Sir With Love", "The Substitute", "Blackboard Jungle", Seasons 4-5 of "Friday Night Lights", "the White Shadow" and "Welcome Back Kotter" haven't already stripped bare?
    Why not just put the clip of Cartman doing his best Escalante impression on repeat and call it a day?
