For quite a while there have been two films called Chef in the works, but now Jon Favreau’s movie by that name is out, the one set to star Bradley Cooper looks like it’s searching for a new name (the title Adam Jones has been suggested, but it seems they’ve decided against it).
A great cast has already been lined up and now they’ve been joined by Welsh actor Matthew Rhys, best known for Brothers & Sisters and The Americans.
Uma Thurman, Sienna Miller, Daniel Bruhl, Riccardo Scamarcio, Emma Thompson, Lily James, Omar Sy, Jamie Dornan, Sam Keeley, Sarah Greene and Alicia Vikander are also set to star.
Cooper will play Adam Jones, a Parisian 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.
Rhys is set to play a rival chef who stands in the way.
John Wells is set to direct from a screenplay by Steven Knight.
