Favreau will write, direct and star in "Chef," which is not to be confused with the movie Bradley Cooper is attached to. Instead, this one will find Favreau playing an emotional chef running a restaurant in Los Angeles. Financing and all that fun stuff still needs to come together, but should all of those things get tied up, "Chef" could be Favreau's next gig. But if not? Dude has options.
He's still got "Magic Kingdom" being conjured at Disney, and last fall he signed up to helm the motorcycle flick "Battle For Bonneville" with Ryan Reynolds attached to star. But a return to the LA milieu that spawned "Swingers" has some potential, so we'll wait to see how this all turns out. [Variety]
