Iron Man's Robert Downey Jr and Jon Favreau will reunite on independent film Chef

Actor and the director of the first two films in the superhero series are set to work together on an indie comedy

For our next trick … Robert Downey Jr and Jon Favreau talk to fans at Comic-Con

Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr is to reunite with director Jon Favreau on the independent comedy Chef, according to the Hollywood Reporter.



Favreau directed the first two films in the superhero saga and reprises his cameo role as Tony Stark's bodyguard Happy Hogan in the hugely successful current third film in the series. He will take the lead role in Chef, which centres on a sacked restaurant worker who starts up a food truck to reclaim his artistic promise and simultaneously finds himself reclaiming his estranged family. The film, which begins shooting next month in LA, also stars Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo and Bobby Cannavale. It is not yet known which role Downey Jr will play.


Downey Jr's Iron Man 3, directed by series newcomer Shane Blacklooks likely to break the $1bn mark at the global box office in the next few days after taking a gargantuan $72m in the US and $89.3m elsewhere at the weekend. It has currently made $948m across the world in just three weeks of release (two in north America) and could yet surpass the $1.5bn figure garnered by Marvel Studios predecessor The Avengers last year.


Favreau made his name in front of the cameras on the Doug Liman indie comedy drama Swingers, which he also wrote, in 1996, and has oscillated between directing and acting ever since. Despite the low-key nature of Chef, he maintains an interest in blockbuster film-making: future projects include the Disney film Magic Kingdom, about a family which travels to Disneyland and sees its famous inhabitants come to life.


Favreau vai dirigir uma comédia independente que envolve um chef que, depois de demitido, busca restabelecer sua carreira e acaba se aproximando de sua família que havia se afastado dele. Downey Jr. fará parte do elenco, junto com Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo e o próprio Favreau. As filmagens começam no mês que vem, em Los Angeles.

O personagem de Downey Jr. ainda não foi detalhado. Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo e Bobby Cannavale também estão no elenco.


Favreau  tem cara mas não e nada bobo e escalou a Scarllet como interesse romântico, bom ser diretor
