Hot off the buzz surrounding Jordan Peele’s racial horror movie Get Out, Deadline reports that star Daniel Kaluuya is set to head up the latest film from 12 Years A Slave director Steve McQueen. Kaluuya—whose past credits include Sicario and Kick-Ass 2—will co-star in Widows, McQueen’s new movie about four women who hope to complete a bank heist originally planned by their four late husbands. Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Erivo are also set to star, while McQueen wrote the script with Gone Girl’s Gillian Flynn.

Get Out has gotten strong reviews for its mixture of racial microaggressions and macro horror, and is expected to do well at the box office this weekend. Meanwhile, Kaluuya is keeping busy, currently filming on Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther film.
