‘Straight Outta Compton’ Writer Andrea Berloff Heads to ‘The Kitchen’

New Line has hired “Straight Outta Compton” screenwriter Andrea Berloff to adapt the Vertigo comic “The Kitchen.”

Berloff and Jonathan Herman were nominated for an Academy Award and Writer’s Guild Award for their “Straight Outta Compton” screenplay earlier in 2016.

“The Kitchen” is based on the comic book series by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle for Vertigo from DC Entertainment. It’s a classic gangster story with fresh point of view with a group of Irish mobsters sent to prison and their wives take over their jailed spouses’ organized crime operations to become the most ruthless and powerful gangsters in 1970’s Hell’s Kitchen.

Specifics of the plot are being held under wraps, but the adaptation will be faithful to the comic.

In 2006, Berloff made her feature debut and wrote the screenplay for the film “World Trade Center,” directed by Oliver Stone.

Berloff is represented by CAA, Management 360. The news was first reported by Tracking Board.
