The film will be shot over the next 12 months and is based on a script by Rob Green, who described the premise to Screen Daily by saying, “Imagine a top celebrity chef with the gourmet talents and bravado of Gordon Ramsay and the tastes of Hannibal Lecter.”
There’s no word yet on who will play the flesh-eating chef, but producer Charlotte Walls described the main character, Giles Bonham-Hess, as a “terrific character, charismatic and repulsive in equal measure… the chance to explore the dark tastes of the privileged super-rich in our story world will be a lot of fun to realize.”
We have a lot questions that need to be answered, including: Will José Andrés be called to consult on how true-to-life the food looks, as he was for NBC’s Hannibal? How creepy will the craft services setup be? And finally, how much room is there for celebrity chef cameos?
