Alexander Payne has found his next feature, as the “Sideways” and “The Descendants” filmmaker is attached to direct the comedic horror-thriller “The Menu” with Gary Sanchez Productions.

Will Tracy and Seth Reiss penned the script with Adam McKay, Will Ferrell, and Betsy Koch producing under the Gary Sanchez banner.

The pic is set in the world of high-end culinary culture. The story centers on a young couple who visits an exclusive destination restaurant on a remote island where the acclaimed chef has prepared a lavish tasting menu, along with some shocking surprises.

The package is set to hit the market soon and will likely attract the attention of a number of studios. There’s not currently a timeline on when it would shoot, but sources say it would be Payne’s next feature.

Info from ten days ago.
Ralph Fiennes and Emma Stone have joined Payne's next project. Fiennes and Stone look like a great duo for a film that mix comedy and drama. And Payne is very good at directing actors. As one of the few people who defended Downsizing, I have high expectations for this one.
