Even Hollywood megastars are sometimes eager to work on the cheap because they can accept to make profits based on the success of the film. Don’t be surprised if Jon Favreau‘s indie comedy Chef meets these requirements.
New report says Robert Downey Jr. will team up again with his Iron Man director and has joined the ensemble cast of his next project that’s being sold at Cannes next week.
Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo and Bobby Cannavale were previously set to headline. Favreau will star as a chef who quits his job and starts a food truck to ‘reclaim his artistic promise.’ Vergara is attached to join Favreau as his character’s ex-wife, while Boardwalk Empire actor Cannavale is in talks to also board the project as a sous-chef.
No word yet on Downey Jr.’s role. RDJ and Favreau can be currently seen in the third installment of the Iron Man franchise.
Chef (not to be confused with the movie Bradley Cooper is attached to) is set to start production in Los Angeles, July 8th, 2013.
