Adria said he insisted on training the actors in return for his participation in the production of the film. "The people who appear in the movie have got to see us work, and they have to see Ferran Adria work," he said.

The film's producer, Jeff Kleeman, told the website The Daily Meal that the training session will see actors working in the kitchen and the dining room so they "understand in totality what that full experience of working and running and dining at elBulli is."

Though Kleeman indicated that the elBulli restaurant site in Spain's northeastern Catalonia region will be used, Adria said a decision still must be made on whether the training will happen there or at a recreated version of the restaurant, possibly in Hollywood.

This isn't the restaurant's first move to the big screen. Adria previously was the focus of a 2011 documentary, "El Bulli: Cooking in Progress." The new elBulli movie, which is being produced and financed by Vendome Pictures, is from a screenplay based on the book by Lisa Abend, "The Sorcerer's Apprentices: A Season in the Kitchen at Ferran Adria's elBulli."
