t’s surprising things have gone on this long with Bradley Cooper’s upcoming culinary world film maintaining the Chef title, what with Jon Favreau’s film still in theaters. But finally somebody has gotten around to a name change, retitling it Adam Jones, which hopefully won’t confuse audiences into thinking it’s about the troubled football player known for “making it rain”.
Along with the name change comes a big boost in talent. Joining Cooper and Sienna Miller are Emma Thompson, Alicia Vikander, Daniel Brühl, Riccardo Scamarcio, Lily James, and Fifty Shades of Grey’s Jamie Dornan. No mention of Omar Sy in Daily Mail’s report, but it could be just an oversight. The film, directed by John Wells from a Steven Knight script, centers on a celebrity chef who loses everything due to his hard partying ways. Cleaning himself up, he returns to London and opens up a new restaurant in hopes of winning a third Michelin star.
