Robert Duvall has rounded out the cast of Steve McQueen’s thriller “Widows,” starring Viola Davis.
Duvall joins an impressive ensemble cast, including Colin Farrell, Liam Neeson, Andre Holland, Elizabeth Debicki, Cynthia Erivo, Michelle Rodriguez, and Daniel Kaluuya.
The film is based on the British miniseries of the same name, which was penned by BAFTA award-winning writer Lynda La Plante (“Prime Suspect”). The pic opens with four armed thieves being killed during a robbery. Their surviving widows come together to try to finish the failed job.
Duvall will play Farrell’s father who may help the widows complete the gig. Production is expected to start this summer, although a release date hasn’t been set yet.
