*Paramount has announced that it is making Denzel Washington’s next directorial project, “Fences,” in which he’ll star with Viola Davis.

Both actors won Tony Awards for their performances in the play’s 2010 Broadway revival.

Scott Rudin and Todd Black are producing big screen version of August Wilson’s Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play. The film will use Wilson’s own film adaptation, which follows a onetime promising baseball player who works as a Pittsburgh garbage collector.

Paramount plans to begin shooting in April.
