Berlin: Hyde Park Boards Anthony Bourdain's 'Bone in the Throat' (Exclusive)
The food-centric noir thriller, based on Bourdain's first novel, stars Ed Westwick and Tom Wilkinson.
Anthony Bourdain is once again on the move — or rather, the film adaptation of his first novel, the noir thriller Bone in the Throat, is.
Ashok Amritraj's Hyde Park International has boarded the indie project and is shopping it to foreign buyers at Berlin's European Film Market. Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl) and Tom Wilkinson (Selma) star in the film, which will have its world premiere in the narrative feature section of the upcoming South by Southwest Film Conference and Festival.
The story revolves around a young, ambitious chef who, while trying to focus on getting ahead in his career, gets pulled into the East End London mob by his uncle who expects him to join him. He has to work quickly to undo his uncle’s mess, while staying alive and out of jail. Rupert Graves, Vanessa Kirby, John Hannah, Steve Mackintosh and Andy Nyman also star.
Graham Henman directed from an adapted script he wrote with Mark Townsend.
Gersh is repping domestic rights to Bone in the Throat. Producers are Nick Thurlow, Lenny Beckerman and Maggie Monteith, with Bourdain, Jamie Donaldson and Ron Perlman executive producing.
Bourdain is best known as the host of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations and Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown on CNN.
