For the last few weeks, we've been hearing that Robert Downey, Jr. wants to leave Iron Man to pursuit indie films. First up will be a film called Chef, from his IM and IM2 director Jon Favreau.
Today, Scarlett Johansson has joined the cast of Chef, completing the Marvel trifecta.
Favreau will also star in the film, as a chef who loses his job. In order to regain his passion and win back his family, he opens a food truck.
Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, and Bobby Cannavale will also star.
Favreau's Chef is competing for the name with another movie that's in production from director John Wells, with Bradley Cooper (The Hangover Part III) attached to star. Both films are seeking funding at the Cannes Film Festival, and the confusion will surely cause one of them to change titles.
