Duo has taste for ‘Spices’

Scribe Chadha will produce Divakaruni adaptation

Dylan McDermott will star opposite former Miss World Aishwarya Rai in “The Mistress of Spices” for helmer Paul Mayeda Berges. Production starts next week.

“Mistress of Spices” is an adaptation of Chitra Divakaruni’s novel about an Indian woman who runs a San Francisco spice shop. Her wares seem to have the power to cure her customers’ problems, but her magic fades when she falls in love with an American.

Gurinder Chadha, who wrote “Bend It Like Beckham” with Berges, will produce the pic with Deepak Nayar.

McDermott recently wrapped “The Tenants” opposite Snoop Dogg. He’s also wrapped “Edison,” which stars Kevin Spacey, Morgan Freeman and Justin Timberlake.

Rai most recently starred in Chadha’s “Bride and Prejudice.”
