The gritty, female-driven mob drama "The Kitchen," from New Line Cinema and BRON Creative, is written and directed by Andrea Berloff, who was nominated for an Oscar for the original screenplay for "Straight Outta Compton."
"The Kitchen" stars Melissa McCarthy ("Bridesmaids"), Tiffany Haddish ("Girls Trip") and Elisabeth Moss ("The Handmaid's Tale") as three 1978 Hell's Kitchen housewives whose mobster husbands are sent to prison by the FBI. Left with little but a sharp ax to grind, the ladies take the Irish mafia’s matters into their own hands—proving unexpectedly adept at everything from running the rackets to taking out the competition…literally.
The film also stars Domhnall Gleeson ("Star Wars: The Last Jedi"), James Badge Dale ("Only the Brave"), Brian d'Arcy James ("Spotlight"), with Margo Martindale (TV's "The Americans"), Oscar winner Common ("Selma," "Marshall"), and Bill Camp (TV's "The Night Of"); along with Jeremy Bobb ("Marshall"), E.J. Bonilla (TV's "The Long Road Home"), Wayne Duvall ("Prisoners"), Annabella Sciorra (TV's "Daredevil"), Myk Watford.
Berloff's screenplay is based on the Vertigo comic book series created by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle for DC. Multiple Oscar nominee Michael De Luca ("Captain Phillips," "Moneyball," "The Social Network") and Marcus Viscidi ("Rampage") are producing. Serving as executive producers are Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Michael Disco, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth, and Elishia Holmes.
Berloff’s creative team includes director of photography Maryse Alberti (“Creed”), production designer Shane Valentino ("Straight Outta Compton"), Oscar-nominated editor Christopher Tellefsen ("Moneyball," "A Quiet Place") and costume designer Sarah Edwards (upcoming "Ocean’s 8," Showtime’s "Billions").
Principal photography will take place primarily in and around the film’s setting, New York City's famed Hell's Kitchen.
A New Line Cinema production, "The Kitchen" is currently set for release on September 20, 2019. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
