Ralph Fiennes and Emma Stone have joined the cast of Alexander Payne’s next film, satirical thriller “The Menu”.

Produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay via Gary Sanchez Productions, the dark comedy centers on a culinary event at an exclusive restaurant on an island, which turns out to be to die for.

“The Menu” will follow a young couple who travel to the remote island for the event. Emma Stone (“The Favorite”) will play one half of the couple, while Ralph Fiennes (“The Grand Budapest Hotel”) will play the head chef of the high-end restaurant, whose lavish tasting menu contains some unwelcome surprises.

The script will be written by Will Tracy (“Last Week Tonight With John Oliver”, “Succession”) and Seth Reiss (“Late Night With Seth Meyers”).
