Robert Downey Jr. is starting work on a new project with Jon Favreau. Downey has the lead role in Chef, an independent ensemble comedy written by Favreau who will also direct and co-star. Chef also stars Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale and Scarlett Johansson.
Vergara was in Colombia early last month for the Bicentenario de Barranquilla celebration in which she received a special recognition from her hometown mayor, along with other people who have brought pride and recognition to their city. Vergara returned to New York for work projects and is filming Heat alongside Jason Statham in New Orleans. She is in pre- production for Chef.
Financing for Chef is by Aldamisa Entertainment in partnership with Kilburn Media and production will begin July 8 in Los Angeles. Chef is scheduled to be in theaters during 2015.
