Production has begun on The Hundred-Foot Journey, starring Oscar-winner Helen Mirren and directed by Lasse Hallström. An actual adaptation of Richard Morais’ bestselling novel rather than just merely the made-up title of a Lasse Hallström movie, the film stars Manish Dayal as a culinary ingénue who, along with his family, is displaced from his native India, settles in a quaint village in the south of France, and opens up an Indian restaurant. As the chilly proprietress of a Michelin-starred, classical French restaurant, Mirren’s character then gets all pissy, and culture clash ensues. So… yeah, pretty much a classic Lasse Hallström movie. If you especially loved The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, save the release date; it’s August 8, 2014, from Disney and DreamWorks.
