Oscar-winning actress boards drama.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Helen Mirren and up-and-coming star Manish Dayal (‘Switched at Birth,’ ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’) have been cast in Lasse Hallström’s culinary drama ‘The Hundred-Foot Journey.’

Adapted from the best-selling novel of the same name by Richard C. Morais, the story follows the culinary rivalry between a Michelin-star restaurant in France, and a family run Indian restaurant that is located 100 feet away.

Production is scheduled to begin in September in France and India with Steve Knight (‘Hummingbird,’ ‘Eastern Promises’) providing the script. Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake are producing.
