Emma Stone and Ralph Fiennes Sign On for Alexander Payne’s Horror-Comedy ‘The Menu’
We learned earlier this year that Oscar-winner Alexander Payne (Sideways, Nebraska) was working on a horror-comedy titled The Menu, and Payne has begun casting the film this week.
Deadline reports that Emma Stone (Zombieland: Double Tap) and Ralph Fiennes (The Grand Budapest Hotel) are the first two stars to come aboard!
The film, penned by Will Tracy and Seth Reiss, “focuses on a young couple who visits an exclusive destination restaurant on a remote island where the acclaimed chef has prepared a lavish tasting menu, along with some shocking surprise.”
Deadline notes, “Fiennes plays the world-class chef who sets it all up and adds some unexpected ingredients to the menu planned. The action follows one particular A-list couple that takes part. I’ve heard Stone will play half of that couple.”
Gary Sanchez is producing.
