You may have caught wind that Tiffany Haddish was set to give a shot at drama for the upcoming film, The Kitchen. The movie which will be produced by New Line Cinema appears to finally have rounded out it’s cast. According to Deadline, Melissa McCarthy is finalizing her deal to share the screen with Haddish in the film.
The film is an uncommon one for a major studio: a gritty drama directed by a female filmmaker, with three strong female leads in the anti-hero roles. The Kitchen is an Irish mafia story set in Hell’s Kitchen, New York in the 1970s. An FBI sweep catches mob leaders, and while they are under arrest and their criminal enterprise is jeopardized, the mob wives take over. They end up running the illicit business in more vicious fashion than their husbands ever did.
