Warner Bros. Pictures has premiered the first photo from Andrea Berloff’s crime drama “The Kitchen” starring Elisabeth Moss, Melissa McCarthy, and Tiffany Haddish.
An adaptation of the DC/Vertigo comic by Ollie Masters, the story is set in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen in the late 1970s and follows the wives of Irish mobsters. When said mobsters are sent to prison by the FBI, the women step in and take over – proving unexpectedly adept at everything from running the rackets to taking out the competition.
McCarthy is Kathy, an adoring mother who leads the charge. Haddish is Ruby O’Carroll, a woman willing to kill anyone who gets in her way. Moss is Claire Walsh, a timid wife of an abusive husband who eventually starts to fall in love with the violence that starts to take over her life.
Domhnall Gleeson, Common, James Badge Dale, Brian d’Arcy James, Margo Martindale, Bill Camp and Jeremy Bobb co-star. “Straight Outta Compton” co-writer Andrea Berloff penned the script while Michael De Luca will produce. The film opens in cinemas on September 20th.
