So, when is a little indie project not really a little indie project? When it features mega-star Robert Downey Jr. And while it might not boast explosions or CGI, Jon Favreau's next film just got a high wattage actor on board. 

That's right. Tony Stark and Happy Hogan are gonna cook up "Chef" together, which is not be confused with the Bradley Cooper/John Wells flick that's brewing. Penned by Favreau, he'll star as a chef who loses his job, starts up a food truck, rediscvoers his culinary talent and reunites with his loved ones. "Silver Linings Cookbook"? No word yet on RDJ's role, but the cast is rounded out by Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo and Bobby Cannavale. Not too bad, actually. 

Once "Iron Man 3" is done destroying the box office, production will begin in July, and we presume RDJ's take home will be slightly less than $50 million for this. So you can expect to make a reservation for this one in 2014. [THR]

    Sounds exactly like the end of "The Five Year Engagement"

    I'm more interested in the Bradley Cooper movie.
