Tiffany Haddish is in talks for a lead role in New Line Cinema's planned movie adaptation of the DC/Vertigo title The Kitchen by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle, according to Variety. Straight Outta Compton screenwriter Andrea Berloff has previously joined the project as writer/director.
Set in 1970's New York City, The Kitchen is about three women who take over the family crime business in Hell's Kitchen after their husbands go to jail. Set in 1970's New York City, the comic has plenty of well-rounded male characters as well, and their reaction to these three tough women mirrors the conflict of the women's lib movement of that era.
Haddish, an actor and comedian, is best known for her roles in Girls Trip, Keanu, and the OWN series If Loving You Is Wrong.
No release date has been given for The Kitchen.
