The Hollywood Reporter has reported that the project now has a director co-writer Andrea Berloff who was a co writer on “Straight Outta Compton”. “The Kitchen” will be Berloff’s directorial debut. “The Kitchen” will be executive produced by Sam Brown and Michael Disco for New Line, which, like Vertigo parent company DC Entertainment, is a division of Warner Bros.
The Kitchen focuses on the wives of three mafia bosses in the Hell’s Kitchen area of New York City, who take over the family business when their husbands are sent to prison. The women subsequently discover that not only do they enjoy the work, but that they are also very good at it, which raises the question of what will happen when their husbands eventually get released.
