Om Puri has joined the cast of THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY alongside Helen Mirren, Charlotte Le Bon and Manish Dayal. Story centers on a young Indian man who becomes a famous French chef with the help of Madame Mallory. No word on what role Puri will play.
Steven Knight (“Dirty Pretty Things”) adapted Richard C Morais’ book of the same name. Lasse Hallstrom (“Safe Haven”) will direct while Oprah Winfrey, Rebecca Hobbs, Steven Spielberg and Juliet Blake produce.
Puri is a prolific actor in India, but Americans may know him best from 2007’s “Charlie Wilson’s War.”
