Melissa McCarthy And Tiffany Haddish Set To Star In New Line And DC Entertainment's THE KITCHEN

There's a big-screen adaptation of Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle's DC Vertigo comic series The Kitchen in the works at New Line, and it's set to star Melissa McCarthy And Tiffany Haddish in the lead roles.

According to Deadline, Melissa McCarthy (Ghostbusters) and Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip) have signed on to star in New Line Cinema and DC’s The Kitchen.

The project is an adaptation of a 2014 DC Vertigo comic book series from Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle, which tells the story of a group of Irish mob wives in Hell’s Kitchen in the 1970s who take over the business when their husbands are sent down by the FBI.

Though McCarthy and Haddish' involvement might suggest a comedic tone, this big-screen take is described as a "gritty drama."

The Kitchen will be written and helmed by Straight Outta Compton scribe Andrea Berloff, who is making her directorial debut.
