Oscar, Emmy, and Tony winner Viola Davis will step into an action role in Widows.
Fox just released the trailer for the flick, directed by Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave), in which Davis’ character leads three women who have to pay off their husbands’ debts after they died during a failed robbery attempt, on a heist.
“Our husbands aren’t coming back,” Davis says in the trailer. “We’re on our own. They stole a lot of money and now people want it from us. Now, the best thing we have going for us is being who we are. Because no one thinks we have the balls to pull this off.”
“The movie is based on a 1980’s British miniseries of the same name and stars Michelle Rodriguez, Cynthia Erivo, Elizabeth Debicki, Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Robert Duvall, Daniel Kaluuya, Lukas Haas and Brian Tyree Henry.”
Widows was written by McQueen and Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn. It opens on Nov. 16.
