New Line’s Vertigo adaptation of a mob drama graphic novel series titled The Kitchen has finally moved past its pre-production stage. The DC Entertainment’s female-led project is all set to begin production this month.
The film’s gritty plot which centers upon Hell’s Kitchen will be filming in New York on May 11th. Production is expected to go on till July 5th, according to the listings on Production Weekly.
A story set in the 1970s when Time Square was a haven for sex and drugs, The Kitchen will center upon a trio of housewives in New York who will end up taking control over their husband’s criminal enterprises when the men land up in prison. Initially, the three women are underestimated but they soon show they are capable of running the organized crime game better than their husbands did.
Earlier in April, a report from THR revealed that Domhnall Gleeson was in final negotiation of joining the project which already has several star-studded casts on board. Gleeson would play the role of Gabriel O’Malley. The character was described as “an intense Vietnam vet who works for the neighborhood gangsters as a hitman before skipping town to avoid the police.” But he returns to “settle scores” during the time when the wives are in control.
The female trio will be played by Tiffany Haddish, Melissa McCarthy and Elizabeth Moss. Margo Martindale, Brian d’Arcy James and Bill Camp are also set to appear in this film.
A previous report stated, “McCarthy is an adoring mother who leads the women’s charge to take over the business while Haddish plays a woman willing to kill anyone in the way of her plan. Moss will play a timid wife of an abusive husband who falls in love with the violence of her new life.”
The gritty mob drama project will be helmed and written by Straight Outta Compton Fame writer Andrea Berloff. This will be her directorial debut with Michael De Luca producing the project.
The Kitchen will hit theaters next year on September 20.
