It doesn’t spell the greatest confidence in “Burnt” that The Weinstein Company are still reportedly test screening the movie, but they are committed to the release date it seems, as the Bradley Cooper starring food world drama now has a new trailer with a few weeks to go before it hits cinemas.
Director John Wells is hard to work putting the finishing touches on the flick, and unfortunately, it has meant snipping one actor from the ensemble: “Fifty Shades Of Grey” star Jamie Dornan. “In making every film, cuts and adjustments in story lines inevitably occur. In the case of ‘Burnt,’ Jamie’s role was a small cameo that he was kind enough to do for us and was part of Sienna Miller’s character’s backstory,” he told EW. “We ultimately decided to focus on Adam Jones’ redemption story.”
Indeed, the movie focuses on the chef, played by Cooper, who goes on a culinary quest to earn his third Michelin star. But of course, not only does he have to battle his personal demons, but those who want to see him fail as well.
Co-starring Sienna Miller, Omar Sy, Daniel Brühl, Matthew Rhys, Uma Thurman and Emma Thompson, “Burnt” opens on October 23rd.
