Robert Downey Jr.Robert Downey Jr. is reteaming with his Iron Man and Iron Man 2 helmer, Jon Favreau, in Chef, which Favreau wrote, will direct and star in as a chef who loses his chef job and starts up a food truck to reclaim his artistic promise and reclaiming his estranged family.

There is no word on what Downey's role in the project will be, but he joins previously cast Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo and Bobby Cannavale in the film, which is expected to begin filming on July 8 in Los Angeles with production company Aldamisa taking it to Cannes to sell international rights.

    Excited for this. Probably won't be great, but it had RDJ so I'm in.

    the food truck idea is fresh, but not the whole "I lost my restaurant and have to find my way to new meaning in life. Oh, and on the way I fall in love with the woman who helps me find my way!"
    But I usually get a laugh out of Favreau's writing.
