Bradley Cooper is confirmed to be starring in John Wells's "Chef". Cooper plays a Paris chef who destroys his wunderkind status in a blaze of out of control behavior.
He cleans up and returns to Paris sober, determined to redeem himself by spearheading a top restaurant that can gain three Michelin stars.
Michelle Williams and Marion Cotillard are being considered for the female lead, and Omar Sy for a co-starring role.
This is not to be confused with the Jon Favreau-directed comedy "Chef". In fact, due to the title confusion, Sony Pictures has sent a cease and desist letter to coax Fairview Entertainment and Favreau to find another title.
