Gwyneth Paltrow Eats Up 'Blood, Bones & Butter'

The Playlist By Joe Cunningham | The Playlist July 19, 2012 at 10:49AM

The last film that we saw her in was “The Avengers,” in all likelihood the next film that we’ll see her in is “Iron Man 3,” and in the week after Comic-Con most of the talk has been about whether she’ll ever don the metal suit in any future Marvel movies. As a result, it has been easy to forget that Gwyneth Paltrow is an established actress outside of the Marvel universe, but may be set to change (at least for a while) because we’ve got an announcement about her next non-Marvel project.

Gwyneth Paltrow Blood, Bones & Butter

The last film that we saw her in was “The Avengers,” in all likelihood the next film that we’ll see her in is “Iron Man 3,” and in the week after Comic-Con most of the talk has been about whether she’ll ever don the metal suit in any future Marvel movies. As a result, it has been easy to forget that Gwyneth Paltrow is an established actress outside of the Marvel universe, but may be set to change (at least for a while) because we’ve got an announcement about her next non-Marvel project.

Paltrow is in negotiations to star in the indie “Blood, Bones & Butter” – an adaptation of Gabrielle Hamilton’s food-based memoir. The book follows Hamilton’s journey from her “unconventional” background as the youngest of five children born to a French mother and circus-set-designing father, and then chronicles her path to becoming a chef. The Hollywood Reporter describes the story as “in a similar vein as 'Julie & Julia' ” and will see Paltrow (who herself has authored a cookbook) playing the role of Hamilton, with the project currently out to writers.

Outside of her role as Pepper Potts we’ve seen Paltrow attracted to music-based roles in recent years. She starred (and sung an Oscar-nominated song) in “Country Strong” in 2010 and has popped up as Holly Holliday in three cringe-inducing episodes of “Glee.” But with "Blood, Bones & Butter" coming on the back of “Contagion,” does this suggest that food is the new music for Gwyneth? She did name her daughter Apple, after all. Let’s hope that she has a slightly better experience with food in this project though…because it certainly didn’t end well for her after a meal in "Contagion."
