Scarlett Johansson Joins Robert Downey Jr. in Jon Favreau's CHEF
We've got an Iron Man 2 reunion for Jon Favreau's next film project Chef! The director has cast Scarlett Johansson to star alongside himself and Robert Downey Jr. in the film.
Favreau also wrote the script for the movie which "follows a man who loses his chef job and starts up a food truck to reclaim his artistic promise and estranged family at the same time."
According to the report, Johansson will play a character named Molly, a "restaurant manager and sometimes love interest of Favreau’s character, chef Carl Casper." Who wouldn't want to cast Johansson as their love interest? Favreau had this to say in a brief statement,
Scarlett is a tremendous talent and I’m honored to be collaborating with her again. I’m so fortunate to be working with such a fine ensemble.
The movie is set to start production on July 8th, and it also stars Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, and Bobby Cannavale. I'm sure this movie is going to turn out great! Make sure to watch Favreau's Made if you haven't already.
