Irish Eye on Hollywood:
Irish Shine in Steve McQueen’s New Thriller
There’s also lots of Irish-born and Irish American talent in the upcoming thriller Widows, directed by Steve McQueen, who also directed the Northern Ireland film Hunger. Described as a heist flick and due out in November when studios begin releasing their classy Oscar-bait films, Widows stars Colin Farrell and Liam Neeson and was written by Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn. Robert Duvall and Viola Davis are also featured in Widows.
Looking ahead for Farrell, having appeared in one movie about a flying Disney icon (2013’s Saving Mr. Banks, about the making of Mary Poppins), he is also currently slated to appear alongside Michael Keaton and Danny DeVito in a 2019 movie about that famous big-eared flying elephant, Dumbo. ♦
