Warner Bros. have announced the new release date for The Kitchen - a mob drama set in Hell’s Kitchen, New York in the 1970s. After the FBI catches the mobster husbands and send them to prison, the mob wives take over the Irish mafia business. They take matters into their own hands proving unexpectedly adept at everything from running the rackets to literally taking out the competition. The release date is set for August 9th, a month earlier than the previous release date.
Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss and Melissa McCarthy are the powerful mob bosses in the film. The film is female-driven and based on the Vertigo comic book series by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle.
Female director Andrea Berloff expressed, “I was excited by the idea of placing women in a position and world in which we don’t normally see them.” She also adds, “If we’re defying stereotypes, let’s defy them all over. Who says women can’t run the Mafia? Who says comedians can’t do drama?”
We look forward to having Hollywood's funniest comedians play girl bosses in the drama film!
