Marco Pierre White reveals biopic details during NI visit

By Emma Deighan

Marco Pierre White has said Hollywood stars Russell Crowe and Michael Fassbender will play him in a movie inspired by his autobiography, The Devil in the Kitchen.

The celebrity chef was speaking on a whistle-stop visit to Belfast yesterday.

Marco, who opened The Steakhouse Bar and Grill at Park Avenue Hotel in east Belfast in 2015, said: "Ridley Scott approached me and bought the rights of my autobiography. Russell Crowe will play the third Marco and Michael Fassbender has been announced as the middle Marco," he said.

He said his twice to three-time-yearly visit to Northern Ireland was about "refining" the establishment.

"I always think how can we refine and improve things," he said. "We've added new things to the menu, which we are always changing. We have added snails and asparagus, things that are in season."
