John Wells-directed film adds female lead…
Variety hears that Sienna Miller (‘High-Rise,’ ‘Foxcatcher,’ ‘Factory Girl’) is set to star co-star with Bradley Cooper and Omar Sy in the upcoming culinary-themed dramatic comedy ‘Chef.’
With ‘August: Osage County’ and ‘The Company Men’ helmer John Wells directing, the Steven Knight-penned film sees Cooper playing Adam Jones, “a disgraced chef who, after losing his Michelin-rated restaurant in Paris, decides to bring his crew back together in an attempt to create the best restaurant ever in London.”
Erwin Stoff of 3 Arts will produce with Double Feature Films partners Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher. The film is not to be confused with Jon Favreau’s upcoming comedy of the same name.
Miller and Cooper recently worked together on the Clint Eastwood-directed drama ‘American Sniper.’
