The Iron Man 2 gang is getting back together for what will hopefully be a better movie than Iron Man 2. Variety is reporting that Scarlett Johansson will reunite with Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau for Favreau’s indie film, Chef. The story centers on a man (Favreau) who loses his chef job and starts up a food truck to reclaim his artistic promise and reclaiming his estranged family. As we previously reported, the film will have a strong supporting cast with Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, and Bobby Cannavale on board to co-star. I’m happy to see Favreau returning to his indie roots (although in this case “indie” simply means it doesn’t have the gigantic budgets of his recent films), and heading back into a leading role. He’s so money and he knows it.
But the movie is in for a fight over the title as Sony Pictures, which owns John Wells‘ Chef starring Bradley Cooper, has sent a cease and desist letter to coax Fairview Entertainment and Favreau to find another title. Hit the jump for more including possible co-stars for Wells’ Chef.
