Robert Downey Jr On For Chef
With Jon Favreau

Robert Downey Jr., Jon Favreau, Iron Man

Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr are reuniting – and this time the only metal involved will be pots, pans and cutlery. The old Iron Man collaborators are working on Favreau’s new indie comedy drama Chef.

Favreau, who is also in development on big projects such as Magic Kingdom, has decided to get back to his Swingers/Made roots for a low-budget character drama that will also feature Bobby Cannavale, Sofia Vergara and John Leguizamo.

In addition to directing from his script, Favreau will star as a man who loses his job in a posh restaurant and faces estrangement from his family to boot. In the hopes of reigniting his career and winning the love back, he decides to start up a food truck, which are so trendy right now (see also: What To Expect When You're Expecting, TV show Happy Endings, The Five-Year Engagement etc.)

We don’t yet know what Downey Jr will be doing in the movie, but it’s nice to see him taking time out of his busy schedule to work with his old mucker.

The cameras are set to start rolling on July 8 in LA. We can’t wait for the marketing campaign that trumpets “From the star and one of the producers of Iron Man 3!”
