Iron Man team Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr. are back together again in a new movie called Chef. It's always fun listening to these two guys talk, it's just pure entertainment. Below you can watch them as they unveil some limited edition poster art for their new film Chef that they will be showing off at SXSW. Downey Jr. actually designed the posters. They will also be giving away these posters, some of which will be signed.
I'm actually really excited about Chef. It's definitely a smaller film, but that's one of the reason why I'm excited about it. In a recent interview with THR, Favreau talked about the film saying,
"A script hit me, and I wrote it in like two weeks. That was the first time that had happened to me since Swingers. And I’ve been around long enough to know that if you’re lucky enough for the inspiration to hit you, you’ve got to get out of the way and welcome it. It’s a gift. I’m not the type that can just write something from nothing once a year. It has to land on me fully formed. It all clicked."
He went on to compare it to Swingers saying,
"It had the same challenges that Swingers had. It will be an R; we say “f--k” more than once -- but it’s something that I’m comfortable with my kids seeing. Not every beat is being sold for laughs. The beats are about character and emotion -- I never have to push anything further than I want to. When you’re going for a big studio comedy, the joke tally better be pretty high and you better have some big comedy set pieces. That was one of the issues when I was trying to get Swingers made for the first time, which is that there weren’t any broad comedy set pieces. It’s more comedy that comes out of being emotionally attached to the characters."
