Pic is based on the Richard Morais novel

Helen Mirren and Manish Dayal are set to star in the DreamWorks pic “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” which is based on the Richard Morais novel.

Lasse Hallstrom will direct from a script by Steven Knight. Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake are producing.

Pic revolves around an Indian family that moves to Southern France and opens an Indian restaurant a hundred feet across the street from a Michelin-starred French restaurant, and a culinary battle ensues.

Pic will bow on Aug. 8, 2014.

The CAA-repped Mirren can be seen next in the Summit pic “Red 2.” Past credits for Dayal, who is repped by by Innovative Artists and Industry Entertainment, include “90210” and “The Good Wife.”
