Janet McTeer of Ozark reunites with Queen’s Gambit star for a huge new cinematic role.
Following the horrific death of her character Helen Pierce at the end of OZARK’s third season, Janet McTeer has landed her next significant acting role.
In an upcoming project from the makers of HBO’s Succession, Ozark supporting character Janet McTeer will co-star with The Queen’s Gambit’s award-nominated lead Anya Taylor-Joy. In the darkly satirical comedy-drama The Menu, the two Netflix stars will be joined by a supporting ensemble of A-listers.
The Ozark supporting actor is the newest addition to Searchlight Pictures’ next original film’s star-studded roster.
Janet McTeer, who starred in Helen Pierce, will portray a food critic alongside Anya Taylor-Joy and Nicholas Hoult in the film, which follows a young couple who travel to a distant island to dine at an elite restaurant.
The diners will discover they’ve taken on far more than they can handle, as the chef’s world-class dish has some unexpected twists and turns.
In addition to Ralph Fiennes, John Leguizamo, and Hong Chau, the picture will star Ralph Fiennes, John Leguizamo, and Hong Chau.
As he reflects on his career, Michael Parkinson breaks down in tears.
The Menu will reunite some key creatives from HBO’s successful series Succession, in addition to its stellar cast.
Mark Mylod, who directed the show, will direct the film, which was written by Will Tracey of Succession and Seth Reiss of Late Night With Seth Meyers.
Mylod is best recognized for his small-screen work, with appearances on episodes of Entourage, Shameless, and Game of Thrones among his credits.
In addition to Ali G Indahouse, The Big White, and What’s Your Number?, he directed feature comedies Ali G Indahouse, The Big White, and What’s Your Number?
For the third season of Succession, which is set to premiere in October, Mylod is likely to return to directing duties.
Meanwhile, Janet McTeer is unlikely to return for the fourth season of Netflix’s smash crime drama Ozark.
Helen Pierce’s character, the Navarro cartel’s attorney, was introduced in the second season as a spy on Marty (played by Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney).
Her stint on the show, however, came to an end in the last moments of season three, when she was shot by her boss.

Thankfully, Helen’s death did not spell the end of Ozark, as the show was renewed for a fourth and final season in June of last year.
This installment will be broken into 14 episodes. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
