Widows is directed by Oscar-nominated British filmmaker Steve McQueen, of the films Hunger, Shame, and 12 Years a Slave previously. The screenplay is written by Gillian Flynn & Steve McQueen; based on the TV series "Widows" written by Lynda La Plante.

A good director and a good cast. Story is a bit of mediocre, but if done right, this could be watchable. And people involved in this might pull this off very nicely ...

Completely agree. The storyline seems a bit absurd, but with the talent involved, it might be engaging?
