Warner Bros. Pictures has obtained the rights to make "Who Is Killing the Great Chefs?", a remake of a Jacqueline Bisset's 1978 vehicle.
Another movie project has been secured under Warner Bros. Pictures' wings. The Hollywood Reporter reported that the giant film has satisfyingly optioned the rights to create a remake of Ted Kotcheff's 1978 feature of "Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?" which was starred by Robert Morley and Jacqueline Bisset.
Shortened the title to "Who Is Killing the Great Chefs?", Warner has already picked up "Casanova" star Oliver Platt to assume Morley's role. Meanwhile, the story will revolve around an obese editor of a food magazine who intends to kill the cooks who have created his favorite dishes in his effort to lose weight. The list includes a striking dessert chef whose ex-husband, played by Platt, is trying to win her back.
Established in 1926, Warner Bros. Pictures is the main motion picture production arm of Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. which currently is a subsidiary of the Time Warner conglomerate with headquarters in Burbank, California. Its recent productions include "Syriana", "Poseidon", "V for Vendetta", "Superman Returns", and "The Lake House."
