Bradley Cooper and Omar Sy in Talks to Star in Derek Cianfrance’s Comedy CHEF

     January 30, 2013

Quite the “crowd-pleasing” team-up is in the works for director Derek Cianfrance’s (Blue Valentine) new film Chef.  Two actors from two incredibly popular 2012 films (Silver Linings Playbook and The Intouchables) are looking to topline the project, as Variety reports that Bradley Cooper and Omar Sy are in talks to lead the culinary comedy.  Cooper will play “a disgraced chef who, after losing his Michelin-rated restaurant in Paris, decides to bring his crew back together in an attempt to create the best restaurant ever in London.”  Cooper has experience in the world of the culinary arts, as he previously starred on the short-lived Fox sitcom Kitchen Confidential.

Production on the Weinstein Company project isn’t expected to begin for some time, and neither Cooper nor Sy have officially signed on.  It sounds like an interesting change of pace for Cianfrance, though, coming off the rather dark Blue Valentine and the upcoming epic crime drama The Place Beyond the Pines, which also stars Cooper.
