We were surprised to see comedy stalwarts Melissa McCarthy and Tiffany Haddish signing on for what promises to be a gritty mob drama with The Kitchen. The latest person to join the cast has more drama experience under her belt and should be a fine addition, as Elisabeth Moss is now in the film.

Andrea Berloff is making her debut with the movie, which she has adapted from the 2014 graphic novel series by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle that hit shelves from Vertigo.

The story follows what happens when an FBI sweep captures a group of Irish mob leaders in 1970s Hell's Kitchen. With the criminal organisation in chaos, the wives of the men take over and start to run their illicit business in a much more vicious fashion than they ever did.

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. The film is scheduled to arrive in Stateside cinemas on 20 September next year. As for Moss, she's back on TV screens for the second season of The Handmaid's Tale, due on US screens via Hulu on 25 April and likely on Channel 4 around the same time.
