Scarlett Johansson joins her fellow Avenger Robert Downey Jr. in Chef
Writer, director and actor Jon Favreau seems to be dipping into his IRON MAN 2 pool to extract some talent for his next project CHEF. His biggest snag was Robert Downey Jr. reported just last Friday from Cannes. Next on the list is Scarlett Johansson who is no small fish herself. Barring any crazy scenarios, these two stars can also be seen together in THE AVENGERS 2. Not much is known about the indie comedy CHEF, except that it centers around a chef (Jon Favreau) who loses his job at a L.A Restaurant. In order to get his life back together he stars up a food truck. I think it should be a mix of emotional family drama and comedy.
Modern Family’s “it” girl, Sofia Vergara is also in the cast and between her and Scarlett Johansson, CHEF has some very beautifully voluptuous ladies. I’m finding Vergara to be a little over-exposed currently and I wonder how she will translate to the big screen. The full cast includes, Jon Favreau, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo and Bobby Cannavale. CHEF plans to star production July 8th. (Cannes)
