Hell Yes: Gillian Flynn and Steve McQueen Are Making a Lady Heist Film


Looks like Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn has her next project booked: She’ll reportedly be cowriting Widows, a heist flick, with 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen.

The Hollywood Reporter says (via Badass Digest) that, best of all, it’s about a quartet of, yep, widows. LADY CROOKS:

The film is based on the British miniseries of the same name, which was written by Lynda La Plante (Prime Suspect). The story kicks off when four armed robbers are killed during a failed heist and their surviving widows join forces and resolve to pull off the raid themselves.

I’m hoping for 9 to 5, with guns. This is very exciting for anybody who loves heist films but occasionally finds herself thinking, “But when will WOMEN get to steal some shit stylishly?” Wish: granted!
