Chef, the latest from Iron Man and Swingers director Jon Favreau, just made its debut at South by Southwest, and now it has a poster.
The film – in which Favreau wrote, directed, and stars – follows a high-profile chef who loses his passion for his work. It’s only after opening up a food truck with the help of his ex-wife and estranged son that he’s able to find love for his work again. Here’s the official synopsis:
Chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) suddenly quits his job at a prominent Los Angeles restaurant after refusing to compromise his creative integrity for its controlling owner (Dustin Hoffman), he is left to figure out what’s next. Finding himself in Miami, he teams up with his ex-wife (Sofia Vergara), his friend (John Leguizamo) and his son to launch a food truck. Taking to the road, Chef Carl goes back to his roots to reignite his passion for the kitchen — and zest for life and love.
Chef premieres May 9th, but you can get your first look at the poster here. And while you’re at it, check out Brian’s chat with Favreau from SXSW, where the director talks about this film’s place in his “Put-Upon” trilogy of films, as well as a quick review of the movie.
Chef will get its first official trailer on April 7th.
