Clive Owen Viola Davis
Back in October we pointed out that Viola Davis was landing a crapload of gigs for 2010. It now looks like she found a gap in her to-do list, as she has been picked up by DreamWorks to star in the bigscreen adaptation of Kathryn Stockett's best-selling novel, The Help.

Viola Davis for The Help


Directed by Tate Taylor off an adapted screenplay he wrote, The Help, set in Jackson, Miss., in the early 1960s, explores how the unspoken code of behavior governing Southern households is shattered when an aspiring writer interviews a maid, who speaks candidly about her experiences. The interview sets off shock waves that reverberate across the entire community.

Davis would play the role of Aibileen, the maid.

DreamWorks is currently in talks with Emma Stone to play the part of the writer.

Davis can next be seen in Eat Pray Love.
