Last year two movies called Chef were in development. While Job Favreau’s one is now in cinemas, the other Chef, which is due to star Bradley Cooper, is still in the works, although it’s cast has now grown as Irish actor Sam Keeley has signed on to star.
Omar Sy and Sienna Miller will also star in the film, which is about Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper), a Paris chef who throws his career away because of his hard-partying lifestyle. After the talented chef sobers up, he assembles a crew to put together the best restaurant in the world, in the hope of gaining the rare and highly-coveted three-star Michelin rating.
Keeley will play David, a chef recruited by Adam for his new restaurant, who ends up taking in his new boss when he needs a new place to live.
The up and coming Keeley was previously seen in This Must Be the Place and What Richard Did (which was also the launching pad for (Transformers 2 stars Jack Reynor), and will be in the upcoming Monsters: Dark Continent and Ron Howard’s Heart of the Sea.
