Gwyneth Paltrow Takes Blood, Bones & Butter


Gwyneth Paltrow has signed on headline a feature film adaptation of Gabrielle Hamilton’s memoir Blood, Bones & Butter, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. The book, published in 2011, is officially described as follows:

‘Blood, Bones & Butter’ follows an unconventional journey through the many kitchens Hamilton has inhabited through the years: the rural kitchen of her childhood, where her adored mother stood over the six-burner with an oily wooden spoon in hand; the kitchens of France, Greece, and Turkey, where she was often fed by complete strangers and learned the essence of hospitality; the soulless catering factories that helped pay the rent; Hamilton’s own kitchen at Prune, with its many unexpected challenges; and the kitchen of her Italian mother-in-law, who serves as the link between Hamilton’s idyllic past and her own future family—the result of a difficult and prickly marriage that nonetheless yields rich and lasting dividends.

Paltrow recently starred in Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion with a brief appearance as Pepper Potts in Marvel’s The Avengers. She’ll reprise the Potts role next year for Shane Black’s Iron Man 3.
