The Kitchen is an Irish mafia story set in Hell's Kitchen, New York in the 1970s, and is described as: an Federal Bureau of Investigation sweep catches mob leaders, and while they are under arrest and their criminal enterprise is jeopardized, the mob wives take over.

Elisabeth Moss is joining Melissa McCarthy and Tiffany Haddish in "The Kitchen", a mob drama adapted from the DC/Vertigo female-fronted crime comic book series of the same name by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle.

Set in Hell's Kitchen in New York City in the 1970s, The Kitchen is an adaptation of the comic book created by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle that follows three tough mob wives who take over the business after their husbands are arrested during an Federal Bureau of Investigation sweep and jailed.

Best known for her star-making turn on Mad Men, which earned her six Emmy nominations, Moss is coming off the first season of Hulu's acclaimed drama The Handmaid's Tale, which won her both an Emmy and a Golden Globe. They end up running the illicit business in more vicious fashion than their husbands ever did. The movie also stars Melissa McCarthy, who portrays the character of an adorable mother.

Moss will be the third part of the main triumvirate, who had to deal with her abusive husband and finds that she can channel violence in her new life.

Haddish was the first lead cast by New Line.

The Kitchen will be written and directed by Andrea Berloff, whose screenwriting credits include Straight Outta Compton, World Trade Center, Blood Father, and Sleepless.

The film is scheduled to arrive in Stateside cinemas on 20 September next year.
