Viola Davis Says She Wants to ‘Fight Zombies’ in Next Dream Role

Actress Viola Davis fought off ruthless soldiers of the mighty Oyo Empire as leader of the Agojie warriors in Gina Prince-Bythewood’s The Woman King, but when it comes to her next dream role, the EGOT winner says she is looking to fight the undead.

During a recent interview with IndireWire, the veteran Hollywood star, who was recently presented with the prestigious Chaplin Award, revealed that she’d “love to do a zombie movie” and already has a film idea in mind.

“Now I say that, in shooting it, I don’t know if I can distinguish between the real and the fiction because if someone was running at me as a zombie, I don’t know,” the 57-year-old actress joked. “You might hear some stories. But I want a Train to Busan. I want my version of Train to Busan. I want to fight some zombies. That’s what I want to do,” she added.

Released in 2016, the South Korean action horror film directed by Yeon Sang-ho follows a workaholic and divorced father taking his young daughter to see her mother in Busan when a zombie apocalypse erupts, threatening the country and everyone on board the high-speed caravan.

Fans can catch Davis in her upcoming performance in the forthcoming action Sci-fi film, The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. The Oscar winner will portray Dr. Volumnia Gaul, the woman responsible for creating the titular contest. The film will premiere in theaters on Nov. 17.
