Helen Mirren & Manish Dayal Set for Dreamworks ‘The Hundred Foot Journey’

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Oscar-winner Helen Mirren and Manish Dayal of ABC Family’s ‘Switched at Birth‘ have signed on to culinary rival flick ‘The Hundred Foot Journey‘.  The film is based on Richard Morais’ best-selling debut novel and has heavy-hitters Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey, and Juliet Blake producing.  Dreamworks’ partner Reliance Film will also be involved by distributing the film in India.

The film centers around the battles between a three-Michelin star rated restaurant, owned by Mirren, with an Indian restaurant, owned by Dayal, in a little town in the south of France called Lumiere.  Mirren will play the extremely talented but unpleasant French chef Madame Malory whom Dayal’s Hassan Haji pits his wits and natural born cooking talent against.  Who’ll come out on top?  I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
