Michelle Rodriguez To Star In Widows
Empire reports that Michelle Rodriguez is set to star in the latest Steve McQueen movie Widows, based on Lynda La Plante’s 1983 crime miniseries. McQueen is working with author Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) on adapting the miniseries for a feature film. It was previously adapted two more times (1985 and 2002). The original starred Ann Mitchell, Maureen O’Farrell and Fiona Hendley as women who lose their criminal husbands after they die robbing a security van that catches fire. The three team with Bella O’Reilly (Eva Mottley) to get the cash themselves.
Rodriguez joins Viola Davis and Cynthia Erivo. Production begins later this year.
