Ava is currently tweaking the script and scouting locations for the movie, according to Deadline.com. This project will reunite her with “Middle of Nowhere” star David Oyelowo who will portray MLK. Ava was chosen by Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company to take over after the film’s original director, Lee Daniels, dropped out.
