Carrie Coon Joins Steve McQueen Thriller ‘Widows’ | Film News
Fargo‘s Carrie Coon is continuing her rise to stardom by joining the cast of Steve McQueen‘s Widows. The thriller is based on a 1980s British miniseries that tells the story of four widows who takeover the heist that killed their husbands. Coon will play a widow who refuses to partake in the job.
Carrie Coon is just another addition to the remarkable ensemble that also includes powerhouses Viola Davis, Liam Neeson and Colin Farrell.
Coon will begin production on the film once she wraps her work on Steven Spielberg‘s The Papers, which also features a strong cast of Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Alison Brie, and Sarah Paulson.
Steve McQueen gained critical acclaim for his directorial work in Shame (2011) and period drama 12 Years A Slave (2013) for which he won an Academy Award.
With the cast looking even stronger, it would be no surprise to see Widows earn the Oscar buzz that McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave did.
Widows will hit US theatres November 16, 2018.
