WB continues moving forward on their DC Comics Vertigo adaptation of The Kitchen by adding Elisabeth Moss.
The Kitchen is an Irish mafia story set in Hell’s Kitchen, New York in the 1970s, and is described as: 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.
Elisabeth Moss joins Melissa McCarthy and Tiffany Haddish, with McCarthy playing an adoring mother who leads the women’s charge to take over the business while Haddish plays a woman willing to kill anyone in the way of her plan. Moss will play a timid wife of an abusive husband who falls in love with the violence of her new life (via THR).
Andrea Berloff is writing and directing The Kitchen, with Michael De Luca on board as producer who has also been named as a new producer on Suicide Squad 2.
The Kitchen comic is written by Ollie Masters, with art by Ming Doyle and Jordie Bellaire, and the cover art is by Becky Cloonan.
Elisabeth Moss is known for The Handmaid’s Tale TV series, Mad Men, Top of the Lake and more.
