Jon Favreau returns to the director’s chair after the poorly received Cowboys & Aliens with Chef, a dramedy about a chef who gives up his job at a noted restaurant to open a food truck and make the kind of food he’s always wanted to make. This looks to be right up Favreau’s alley with a good mix of comedy and heart. It also reunites him with Iron Man‘s stars Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson, comedian/actor John Leguizamo, television star Sofia Vergara, and film legend Dustin Hoffman. After watching the trailer, I am counting my lucky stars I’ll get to watch this in the Alamo Drafthouse while I shovel food into my face. Chef opens May 9, 2014.
(Oh, and check out Linc Leifeste’s 7 out of 10 review of Chef from its premiere at SXSW 2014.)
