Vendome Pictures will produce and finance "El Bulli", a partly fictional film about world-famous Spanish chef Ferran Adrià and his now closed restuarant elBulli.
The story will be set in the final year of the restaurant and offers an inside-the-kitchen look at the intense passion, creativity and tedious work unfolding nightly.
Inspired by Lisa Abend's book "The Sorcerer's Apprentices," David Wilson ("The Man From U.N.C.L.E.") has written the screenplay.
Philippe Rousselet, Jeff Kleeman and John Lesher will produce, and shooting aims to begin later this year.
