Oscar-winning actress Viola Davis will produce and star in a film adaptation of Terry McMillan‘s best selling book, I Almost Forgot About You.

According to DEADLINE, Davis will play Georgia Young, a twice-divorced, successful optometrist. Despite a life, full of great friends and family, she hasn’t felt a romantic spark in awhile, and feeling bored and restless. She decides it’s time to change, and goes on a wild journey of self-discovery, reuniting with old lovers, and getting a brand new lease on life.

The film will be directed by Malcolm D. Lee and produced through The Jackal Group along with Davis’ company, JuVee Productions.

The film will also be written by Ron Bass and McMillan who also adapted her two books, How Stella Got Her Groove Back and Waiting to Exhale.

RC will keep you posted as this continues to develop.
