Jon Favreau is certainly bringing out the big guns to pull in some favors for his upcoming indie comedy "Chef". First, news hit that his "Iron Man" star, Robert Downey Jr., has joined the cast in an unspecified role. Now, another reunion is occurring, in the form of the beautiful Scarlett Johansson joining the ensemble.

The three worked together on "Iron Man 2", and Downey Jr. and Johansson will continue to work together on "Avengers 2", and hopefully "Avengers 3", if it all gets locked as hoped. Johansson will play Favreau's love interest Molly in the film.

On adding Johannson to the cast, Favreau said, "Scarlett is a tremendous talent and I'm honored to be collaborating with her again. I'm so fortunate to be working with such a fine ensemble."

Favreau is directing and starring in the film, from his own screenplay, and production is said to kickoff in Los Angeles on July 8. The film centers around a man who gets fired from his job at fancy restaurant, and opens a food truck in an effort to reignite the passion in his career and his family.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
