The gritty, female-driven mob drama The Kitchen from New Line Cinema and BRON Creative, was written and directed by Andrea Berloff, who was nominated for an Oscar for the original screenplay for “Straight Outta Compton.”
The Kitchen stars Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy , Tiffany Haddish , and Elisabeth Moss as three 1978 Hell’s Kitchen housewives whose mobster husbands are sent to prison by the FBI. Left with little but a sharp ax to grind, the ladies take the Irish mafia’s matters into their own hands—proving unexpectedly adept at everything from running the rackets to taking out the competition…literally.
The film also stars Domhnall Gleeson , James Badge Dale , Brian d’Arcy James , with Margo Martindale , Oscar winner Common, and Bill Camp; as well as Jeremy Bobb , E.J. Bonilla , Wayne Duvall , Annabella Sciorra , Myk Watford.

Serving as executive producers were Richard Brener, Michael Disco, Dave Neustadter, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth, Elishia Holmes, and Adam Schlagman.
Berloff’s creative team included director of photography Maryse Alberti , production designer Shane Valentino , Oscar-nominated editor Christopher Tellefsen and costume designer Sarah Edwards . The music was composed by Bryce Dessner.
