Viola Davis Experiences Doubt

Viola Davis is set to play Mrs. Muller in Miramax’s screen adaptation of John Patrick Shanley’s Tony-winning play “Doubt” reports Reuters.

Davis will play the mother of a young male student who has piqued what Sister Aloysius, the Mother Superior of the school (Meryl Streep), sees as the improper interest of Father Flynn (Philip Seymour Hoffman).

“Enchanted” star Amy Adams is in negotiations to play Sister James, the young nun who has been an indirect witness to the dealings between Flynn and Muller’s son.

Production began last week in New York.
