Cinemystery News: Gillian Flynn To Co-Write Thriller Screenplay based on Lynda La Plante's Miniseries Widows

Cinemystery: Crime Novels Adapted for Film

Crime novelist Gillian Flynn is teaming up with Steve McQueen to write the film screenplay for a thriller based on Lynda La Plante's 1983 ITV television miniseries Widows for New Regency.

The storyline of the original series is centered on three women, widows of three men killed while committing an armed robbery, who team up with a fourth to complete the job. The twist in the series is that there was a fourth man involved, who left his fellow robbers to die and escaped, prompting the widows to seek vengeance as well. Widows aired two sequels and was remade in 2002 for the US market.
