It should be noted that the script for The Menu. The work of Seth Reiss and Will Tracy, appeared back in 2019 in the famous Black List of Franklin Leonard. A film executive who publishes a survey every year with the best original concepts still pending to be purchased for development.

With Taylor-Joy replacing Emma Stone and Fiennes, who apparently is completely overturned in history, as the only constant throughout the process. What does Reiss and Tracy's script have to have entered the radar of such talented people? Three words: The evil Zaroff.
Published in 1924 by Collier's magazine, The Most Dangerous Game has earned the label. "most influential English-language short story of all time" over the course of nearly a century. Its author, Richard Connell, was inspired by the passion of the wealthy America of his day to travel to Africa to participate in big game safaris. A frivolous pastime that, it seems, allowed the rich to feel something real during. The seconds before pull the trigger not that things have changed much since then.
The protagonist of his story is one of those rich New Yorkers who. After being shipwrecked on his way to the Amazon, ends up on an island where a Central European nobleman with Darwinian ideas. About the metaphysics of hunting likes to practice what he defines as “the most dangerous game”: hunting a human being. Connell's original was made into a film for the first time in 1932 under the title in Spanish of The Evil Zaroff. Thus consolidating itself forever in the collective imagination as a platonic ideal of a horror story with philosophical touches.
Since then, the most dangerous game has been adapted to film, radio. Television and even video games on countless occasions, both official and, in the case of The Menu, unofficial. Count Zaroff served as the basis for Kraven the Hunter. The Spider-Man villain who is about to make his film debut as Aaron Taylor-Johnson. But he also seems to have guided the steps of at least two serial killers in life.
Real the Zodiac Killer, who may have made veiled. References to Zaroff in the infamous letters he sent to San Francisco newspapers. And Robert Hansen, a terrifying killer who insisted on unleashing his victims always female in the Alaskan. Woods so you can hunt them down later. On a brighter note, The Evil Zaroff was one of the references that mountaineer and writer Charles Gaines. A proud veteran of various hunting expeditions to the African continent, handled when he created the concept of paintball with two friends.
Given that Richard Connell's short story has been free of rights for a few years now. Aapocryphal revisions of its plot core such as the one proposed by The Menu. Or like the one recently proposed by The Hunt Craig Zobel, 2020, are going to be more common. Ralph Fiennes' character appears before us as an updated version of Zaroff. Someone who has traded the sniper for molecular gastronomy and manhunting for premium tasting experiences. But continues to operate on a desert island until the unwary with enough money in the bank will not stop approaching. With people like this around the world, it will always be the season.
The close relationship between cinema and food is a frequent resource in dozens of films. Despite the fact that it is not very common to find films that have a certain restaurant as the central axis of the story.
Scenes like Meg Ryan's simulated orgasm in the already classic. When Harry Met Sally or the episode that opens and closes Pulp Fiction in a Los Angeles restaurant quickly come to mind.
The truth is that the culinary world, it is known, has evolved quite significantly in recent years. In some luxurious and extremely expensive restaurants. Eating is just a way of doing good to the body and, instead, they start talking about "experience", as if it were an almost existential joy.
That, or as the specialized medium Collider suggests. Which goes further, saying that in addition to that, cooking "is a profound art form that can comment on various aspects of life. As if it were a well-thought-out work of art or a movie Well shot and written."
