Oscar winner Alexander Payne is one filmmaker we’ve never talked about here on BD, and that’s simply because he has to date never ventured into the horror genre. But the director of films such as About Schmidt, Sideways and Nebraska is going to soon be getting a little blood on his hands with the horror-comedy The Menu, we’ve learned this week!
Empire reports that Payne is set to direct the film penned by Will Tracy and Seth Reiss, “which focuses 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 surprise.”
The producers? Will Ferrell and Adam McKay! Betsy Koch is also producing.
