Domhnall Gleeson is in final negotiations to join Elisabeth Moss in “The Kitchen” for New Line based on the DC/Vertigo female crime comic book series. “Straight Outta Compton” co-writer Andrea Berloff is making her directorial debut.
Set in Hell’s Kitchen, New York in the 1970s, the story follows the wives of Irish mobsters who end up taking over the criminal enterprise after their husbands are imprisoned. The women turn out to be more vicious than the men.
Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish and Margo Martindale star. Gleeson will play Gabriel O’Malley, a Vietnam vet turned hitman who skips town to avoid the police, then returns to settle scores when the wives take over.
Michael De Luca is producing the film which begins shooting in May.
