Bradley Cooper movie Adam Jones gets third title change

4 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Bradley Cooper's Adam Jones has received another title change.

The Weinstein Company has said that the culinary movie will now be referred to as the Untitled John Wells Project until another name can be decided upon, reports Deadline.

The film, which was originally called Chef, was changed to Adam Jones after the release of Jon Favreau's film of the same name.

Harvey Weinstein said: "Even though our writer Steven Knight claims we had the rights first, Jon Favreau killed us and made a great movie that we all love.

"And while our film deals with cooking, it's about different things... so now we're calling it the Untitled John Wells Project."

In the film, Cooper stars as a wild chef looking to gain his third Michelin star.

Uma Thurman and Sienna Miller also star in the project, alongside Emma Thompson and Jamie Dornan.

Bradley Cooper’s Chef Pic Gains Uma Thurman, Has Name Changed To Adam Jones

25 July 2014 5:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just ahead of kicking off production, The Weinstein Company has opted to change the title of Bradley Cooper’s upcoming drama from The Chef to Adam Jones, evidently to avoid confusion with Jon Favreau’s Chef, about a food truck owner struggling to stay afloat in his personal and professional lives. Apparently, there was some sort of legal dispute behind the scenes, including a cease-and-desist order, which eventually led to the new title. However, that’s not holding Adam Jones back – in fact, as production is about to get under way, the drama has added Uma Thurman to its already impressive ensemble.

Cooper leads the film as a bad-boy Michelin chef who has to turn his life around. In addition to Thurman, Daniel Bruhl, Riccardo Scarmacio, Emma Thompson, Lily James, Omar Sy, Jamie Dornan, Sam Keeley, Sarah Greene and Alicia Vikander will all co-star. According to Deadline, the plot is »

Let's take a break from festivals and comic book news for a (brief) moment and pivot toward some casting that's going on. Uma Thurman is the latest to join the massive ensemble—Bradley CooperSienna MillerEmma ThompsonDaniel BrühlRiccardo ScamarcioLily JamesJamie Dornan and Alicia Vikander—in the John Wells directed "Adam Jones." The cooking world movie started production today, and tells the story of the title chef who had it all—and lost it. A two-star Michelin rockstar with the bad habits to match, the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star though, he’ll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene.  Former "Downton Abbey" dude Dan Stevens continues to put the period drama behind. »
