    Back to 'Swingers': Favreau's Indie Pic 'Chef' Goes to Open Road

The "Iron Man" director has returned to his "Swinger" roots, Joss Whedon-style, with "Chef," which he wrote, directed...

    Scarlett Johansson Joins Jon Favreau's 'Chef' As Michelle Williams & Marion Cotillard Circle Rival Bradley Cooper Pic

    The culinary arts and filmmaking don't seem to go together that often. You get the occasional great picture set in the restaurant world -- "Big Night" and "Ratatouille" spring to mind -- but more often than not, you end up with films more like "No Reservations" when you try to put cooks on screen. B...

    Robert Downey Jr. Cooking Up Indie 'Chef' With Jon Favreau

    So, when is a little indie project not really a little indie project? When it features mega-star Robert Downey Jr. And while it might not boast explosions or CGI, Jon Favreau's next film just got a high wattage actor on board.

    Bradley Cooper Enlists 'Chef' John Wells For New Cooking Drama

    The story of “Chef” is rather complicated, but let’s have a go at it. And before we get there, do not confuse this with the very-similarly sounding “Chef” project that Jon Favreau is now attached to. Written by “Eastern Promises” screenwriter Steven Wright, “Chef,” is a cooking comedy/drama that’s b...

    Jon Favreau Cooks Up Indie Project 'Chef'

    Who would've thought the earnest, awkward young man who self-destructed while leaving a phone message for a girl in "Swingers" would eventually become one of the key players in the "Iron Man" franchise, create a contemporary Christmas classic with "Elf," and helm blockbuster stuff like "Zathura" and...

    A few months ago, word surfaced that freshly minted Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper was hoping to reteam with his director on the upcoming "The Place Beyond The Pines" (our favorite film of last year's TIFF), Derek Cianfrance, on a project known as "Chef."

    'Intouchables' Star Omar Sy May Cook Up 'Chef' With Bradley Cooper & Derek Cianfrance

    As we learned from the whole Lance Armstrong/J.J. Abrams/Bradley Cooper affair, even direct quotes can be dodgy these days, but this one comes from Cooper himself -- spoken in French no less while doing promo in France -- so we presume no wires have been crossed. And it looks like the actor's te...

    Bradley Cooper Looking To Reteam With Derek Cianfrance For Former David Fincher Project 'Chef'

    With the glut of projects being hawked at the American Film Market, it's not a surprise that sometimes little things, like details, are left on the side of the road. So this morning when it was reported that The Weinstein Company had the sales rights to "Eastern Promises" writer Steven...
