“Widows” Creator Teases Film Sequel

Full Trailer Steve Mcqueens Widows

Author Lynda La Plante has created many famed works including “Prime Suspect” and “Widows,” the latter first adapted into an iconic 1980s mini-series which inspired filmmaker Steve McQueen to do last year’s acclaimed but underseen film version.

LaPlante appeared on UK talk show This Morning on Tuesday to discuss “Widows’ Revenge,” a book sequel that has just been published which revisits the main characters, who successfully pulled off a heist to repay their dead husbands’ debts, and are now living in Rio de Janeiro.

Discussing the book she says: “It’s very deeply about betrayal and revenge, and the need for it… we hope there’s possibly a movie”. The first film, which starred the likes of Liam Neeson, Viola Davis, Colin Farrell, Daniel Kaluuya, Cynthia Erivo, Robert Duvall and Jon Bernthal, was made for $42 million and grossed just $76 million worldwide.
