Gwyneth Paltrow sure loves food. She’s written a cookbook and made TV series were she travels around learning about different regions’ cuisine. Now THR reports that she’s planning to star in and produce Blood, Bones & Butter, a film based on Gabrielle Hamilton’s food memoir.
The book is about Hamilton’s unconventional background, as she is the youngest of five children born to a French mother and an artist father who made the sets for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus. This eventually led her on an unusual course to becoming a chef. She is now the owner and chef of New York’s Prune restaurant also is a trained writer with an MFA from the University of Michigan.
Paltrow wants to take on this tale, with her and fellow producers currently looking for writers to take on the script.
