Colin Farrell is in negotiations to join Viola Davis in Steve McQueen and New Regency’s heist thriller "Widows".
Farrell also recently signed on to star in Disney’s "Dumbo". Production on that movie, however, was pushed back one month, allowing Farrell to squeeze "Widows" into his schedule.
Liam Neeson, Elizabeth Debicki, Cynthia Erivo, Michelle Rodriguez, Daniel Kaluuya, and Andre Holland are also on board. "Gone Girl" screenwriter and novelist Gillian Flynn will write the script with McQueen.
Based on the 1983 British miniseries about a caper gone wrong, the story follows four armed robbers who are killed in a failed heist attempt, leaving their widows to finish the job.
