Robert Downey Jr. joins Jon Favreau’s indie Chef

Robert Downey Jr. will reunite with his original Iron Man director, Jon Favreau, on the indie dramedy Chef, Variety reports.

Downey Favreau

Favreau is set to star in the flick as a chef who loses his job and begins working in a food truck.

He will direct from his own screenplay.

Favreau helmed the first two Iron Man movies, before exiting the franchise to focus on Cowboys and Aliens, as well as the long-delayed Magic Kingdom.

Chef will mark the first small-budget venture for both Downey Jr. and Favreau in quite some time (perhaps exactly the thing required to get their creative juices flowing once again).

Sofia Vergara and Bobby Cannavale are also set to appear in the picture.

Shooting begins in July.
