Actress Uma Thurman (Kill Bill) has signed on to star in the upcoming Weinstein Company-backed film, Adam Jones, according to the Daily Mail. The film also stars actor Bradley Cooper in the titular chef role, and actress Sienna Miller is set to play his sous chef. The cast also includes 50 Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan, Emma Thompson, Daniel Bruhl, Lily James, and Sam Keeley who will play a chef recruited by Cooper's character. John Wells is on board to direct the film.
The Daily Mail writes that "principle photography" for the movie has started in New Orleans and that filming will soon move to London for a month. Many of the film's actors spent a day with chef Marcus Wareing at his two Michelin-starred London restaurant Marcus earlier this month to prepare for the movie. There is no word yet on what role Thurman will play or when the film will be released.
