The upcoming Weinstein Company-backed film staring actor Bradley Cooper that was entitled Chef and then renamed to Adam Jones will be given a new name. According to Deadline, Harvey Weinstein has sent the recently announced Adam Jones title back to the drawing board and the project will go by "Untitled John Wells Project" until the studio agrees on a new moniker.
Weinstein told Deadline that even though the film's writer "claims we had the rights first, Jon Favreau killed us and made a great movie that we all love." Actor/director Jon Favreau's recently released film Chef was positively received. Weinstein wouldn't reveal potential titles for the film that also stars actresses Uma Thurman and Sienna Miller. The movie is currently filming in London and features Bradley Cooper as a chef who is attempting to "revive his career."
