”Anya Taylor-joy Reportedly Took Nicholas Hoult’s Food” The actress recalls filming a dark comedy: “My character doesn’t eat very much, and everyone else was frequently eating.” Anya Taylor-Joy and Nicholas Hoult play a couple of diners at an exceptional occasion hosted by Ralph Fiennes’ renowned chef in the dark comedy The Menu (released November 18).

According to Taylor-Joy, star of Last Night in Soho and The Queen’s Gambit, “a couple goes to a very upscale restaurant on an island for an experience of a lifetime.” “You quickly realize that nothing is exactly as it seems, and craziness sets in. It is a grim satire with scary overtones.”

The screenplay, written by Seth Reiss and Will Tracy, and the actress’s inability to foresee the plot’s twists and turns drew her to the film.

She claims that because she reads a lot of screenplays and sees a lot of movies and television series, she can typically predict how a story will finish. Every time I turned the page of this script, I was shocked and had no idea where it was heading.

Tyler, played by Nicholas Hoult in the movie, is an avid food enthusiast who can’t wait to try the dishes made by Ralph Fiennes’ Chef Slowik. The restaurant’s elaborate food far less enthrals Margot from Taylor Joy. As a result, the actress was frequently forced to leave her plate of food unattended while Hoult and the other cast members consumed food take after take.

She explains, laughing, “I was hungry and waiting for lunch, and everyone else was eating continually throughout the day.” “I also tend to become very worried when I’m hungry. So, I occasionally eat Nick’s food if there are any leftovers.”

Despite this, the actress had happy memories of the movie’s shoot, including Hong Chau, John Leguizamo, Aimee Carrero, Janet McTeer, and Judith Light, among its impressive ensemble.

Taylor-Joy explains, “We all got along so great. “The fact that most people retire to their trailers or go relax when the camera is off of them since the days are long is something I find to be incredibly wonderful. And for the most part, we all just remained on set.

When Mark was filming, the camera would move around us constantly, forcing us to improvise or, if it was a close-up of someone else, give us front-row seats to their stunning performances. We would applaud after takes, so it was a very encouraging setting. Additionally, the WhatsApp group is still quite active.”

The action-love narrative The Gorge, directed by Scott Derrickson and stars Miles Teller, is the actress’s next project after finishing the Mad Max: Fury Road prequel Furiosa. She declares no rest for the wicked, “I start training for that next week.”

“But I’m incredibly pleased about it and eager to collaborate with Miles. We’re going to have a lot of fun with that one, and I believe he’s a fantastic actor.” The Menu opens in theatres on November 18. The movie’s trailer is shown below.
