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.
