Liam Neeson is looking to pull a job for Steve McQueen.

The Taken and Schindler’s List star is in talks to join the cast of Widows, McQueen’s heist thriller based on the 1983 British miniseries of the same name, EW has confirmed.

Neeson would play the husband of Viola Davis in the film, which centers on a crew of robbers who are killed in a caper gone awry, leaving their widows to finish the job.

The cast also includes Elizabeth Debicki, Cynthia Erivo, Michelle Rodriguez, Daniel Kaluuya, and Andre Holland. McQueen (12 Years a Slave, Shame) will direct from a script he’s writing with Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl).

Neeson most recently appeared in Silence and A Monster Calls, and Davis is coming off her Oscar-winning turn in Fences.

Variety first reported the news.
