The upcoming Weinstein Company-backed film starting actor Bradley Cooper that was titled Chef has been renamed to Adam Jones. The rename makes sense since Chef could easily be confused with actor/director Jon Favreau's recently released film of the same name. According to EIN News Desk, Adam Jones is the name of Cooper's character, who is a "genius cook" that returns to London to "revive his career." Actress Sienna Miller signed on to co-star in the film last month, but EIN News Desks reveals that she will play Cooper's character's sous chef.
The Daily Mail notes that the film also stars actors Emma Thompson, Daniel Bruhl, and Lily James . The move will begin filming in and around London very soon. To prepare for the film, many of the cast members spent a day with chef Marcus Wareing at his two-Michelin-starred restaurant Marcus. John Wells will direct Adam Jones. There are still no details regarding a release date.
