Gillian Flynn Interview in Widows Bonus Features Video

Exclusive: Sharp Objects Author Gillian Flynn Reveals How She First Got Involved With Widows

One of 2018's best (and most underrated) films is Widows, Steve McQueen's brutal, raw all-female heist flick that boasts some of the most talented actors in the game: Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, Daniel Kaluuya, Brian Tyree Henry, Michelle Rodriguez, and more.

But behind the scenes, McQueen had the help of author Gillian Flynn, whose genius has blessed us with twisted female-led stories like Sharp Objects, Gone Girl, and Dark Places. In the bonus features included in the film's home release, Flynn reveals the serendipitous way she and McQueen teamed up for the film, which she co-wrote.

"Steve McQueen called me, which was a great phone call to get out of the blue," she said of what led her to Widows. "So we've got Steve McQueen? I'm already in. We've got a heist film with four women? I'm already in. And it's gonna be shot in the town I live in and love, Chicago, which is such an underused and such a cool town . . . I, immediately, was like, 'Where do I sign up?'"

Widows will be available on 4K Ultra, Blu-ray, and DVD on Feb. 5.
