Jon Favreau returns to indie world with Chef

Jon Favreau looks set to return to his indie roots with upcoming film Chef, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Jon Favreau talks Iron Man 3

Favreau – who is these days more famous for directing Iron Man than scripting the 1996 indie Swingers – will star in, direct and produce the new film based on his own screenplay.

He reportedly also has Modern Family star Sofia Vergara signed on to the project to play opposite him as his ex-wife, as well as Boardwalk Empire’s Bobby Cannavale in negotiations for the role of a sous-chef.

Plot details are scarce, but the feature will be set in Los Angeles and the story concerning “a chef and the people who flit in and out of his life.”

Filming is expected to begin as early as June and will mark a dramatic budgetary change for Favreau off the back of the Iron Man 2 and Cowboys & Aliens.
