British actress Helen Mirren has been cast in a Hollywood adaptation of author Richard C. Morais' bestselling book The Hundred-Foot Journey.

The Queen star will appear alongside rising actor Manish Dayal in the culinary-themed drama, about an Indian family which relocates to the South of France and goes to war with the famous owner of a top restaurant after opening its own eatery nearby.

Lasse Hallstrom is attached to direct, while Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey are among the producers behind the DreamWorks project.

Production is due to begin in September (13) in France and India and the movie is slated for release next summer (14).
