Robert Downey Jr. Boards Jon Favreau’s Chef


Robert Downey Jr. is set to team with his Iron Man and Iron Man 2 director (and Iron Man 3 co-star) Jon Favreau for the recently announced indie comedy Chef, Variety reports. Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo and Bobby Cannavale are also set to headline.

Not a lot is known about the plot of the film except that it would take pace in a Los Angeles-based restaurant run by an emotional chef, played by Favreau.

Downey is also set to headline the upcoming comedy drama The Judge and is currently in negotiations to bring his Tony Stark back for Joss Whedon’s Marvel’s The Avengers 2.

Chef, not to be confused with the long in-development movie of the same name, will begin production in Los Angeles in July.
