Anya Taylor-Joy has been pretty busy since The Queen’s Gambit made her a household name, and she’s been scoring roles in one exciting project after another ever since. The next one in line is the comedic psychological thriller The Menu, also starring Ralph Fiennes.

According to its official logline, this promising project is “set in the world of eccentric culinary culture, centering on a young couple who visit an exclusive restaurant on a remote island where an acclaimed chef has prepared a lavish tasting menu.”

Fiennes is set to play the role of the acclaimed chef, while Taylor-Joy will join him as one-half of the couple. The Menu will be directed by Mark Mylod, who most recently found success as the director and executive producer of the critically acclaimed HBO show Succession.

The Menu isn’t the only exciting project that Taylor-Joy has on the way. We’ll soon get to see her play one of the lead roles in Edgar Wright’s next film Last Night in Soho. She’s also set to reunite with Robert Eggers in The Northman, and star alongside Christian Bale and Margot Robbie in David O. Russell’s upcoming period comedy.
