Bradley Cooper is in talks to lead John Wells’ (August: Osage County) Chef, which is one of two projects going by the same name, currently being developed by different studios. The other Chef belongs to Jon Favreau.
The former comes from screenwriter Steven Knight. It tells the story of rock star chef who, after losing his prized restaurant in Paris, attempts to make a comeback with a new place in London.
The latter follows a chef who, after losing his job, decides to open a food truck business. Aside from Favreau, the cast also includes Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo and Bobby Cannavale.

Not every story about Bradley Cooper signing on to a film pans out: while he didn’t end up picking up a weapon for Jane Got A Gun, it appears he is definitely down for a stint in the kitchen for Chef.Cooper was first linked to the movie back in January, when his Place Beyond The Pines director Derek Cianfrance was considering taking the directing job, working with a script by Eastern Promises’ Steve Knight.Now John Wells, fresh from marshalling a top ensemble for August: Osage County, is on to direct the story of Adam Jones (Cooper) a chef at a swanky Paris restaurant who loses his job after a run of out-of-control behaviour. He decides to get clean and returns to the city aiming to run a restaurant that can once more sport three Michelin stars. He might consider getting a rat to help…With Michelle Williams »
“King” is about a film extra who bears a striking resemblance to a movie star.
Lionsgate also acquired “Locke,” which is penned-helmed by Steven Knight (“Dirty Pretty Things”), and stars Tom Hardy and Tom Holland. The film is about one man’s life unravelling in a tension-fuelled 90 minute race against time. Paul Webster and Guy Heeley produce.
Another pickup is Daniel Radcliffe-starrer “Horns,” which was adapted by Keith Bunin from Joe Hill’s novel. Alexandre Aja (“Piranha 3D”) helms. Radcliffe plays a young man who awakens to strange horns sprouting from his temples following his girlfriend’s mysterious death.

Jason Statham’s latest Hummingbird, directed by Steven Knight, has taken on a much more generic title in the form of Redemption. To accompany its name change we also have a brand new trailer and poster (which just changes the title) to show you. The film sees Statham as a homeless veteran taking on a new identity and trying to rebuild his life, but with some excellent fighting skills, the unsavoury characters of London are out to get him. The title change isn’t exactly that important, but it is a shame in that this film certainly seems slightly different to Statham’s usual action output. Perhaps it’s the gritty London locales, the emotional conflict running through Statham, or because this is Knight’s directorial debut after writing the wonderful Dirty Pretty Things and Eastern Promises. Time will tell if this will give us something new, or if it »

Personally, I think Hummingbird had a nice ring to it as opposed to the new domestic title of Redemption for the Jason Statham action thriller. It was intriguing, and could have cemented the film into intrigued fans' minds better than Redemption, which comes off sounding like a film focusing on the priesthood. Moving on... The Steven Knight-written-and-directed film opens June 28th via Roadside Attractions, and also includes Ian Pirie, Vicky McClure, Siobhan Hewlett, Benedict Wong, Senem Temiz and Lee Asquith-Coe. Reeling from a traumatic tour of duty in Afghanistan, Joey »
It figures that the Powers That Be would end up giving Jason Statham’s latest movie, the Steven Knight actioner “Hummingbird” a very Jason Statham-esque name like “Redemption”. (Personally, I thought the film’s other International title, “Crazy Joe”, was kinda cool.) Along with a new title, Roadside Attractions has released a new poster (above), a new (or at least, new-ish) trailer (below), and a release date that will put the film on VOD and theaters at the same time. Sure, it looks a lot like your average Jason Statham movie, but if you’re a fan of that, then this should really go over well. If not? Oh well, you can always wait for “The Expendables 3″, I guess. Reeling from a traumatic tour of duty in Afghanistan, Joey (Jason Statham), an ex-Special Forces soldier, returns to London to face another kind of war: life on the streets as a damaged, »
The action film, which originally was titled “Hummingbird,” marks the directorial debut for Knight, who also penned the script about an ex-special forces soldier looking for justice.
“Redemption” launches alongside Sony’s “White House Down,” starring Channing Tatum and Jaime Foxx, and Fox’s R-rated comedy “The Heat.” In limited release, Sony Classics launches Pedro Almodovar’s “I’m So Excited,” with IFC pair “Byzantium” and “Copperhead” also bowing that weekend.

It was ridiculously exciting to hear the recent news about Jon Favreau going indie again with his film Chef, which he.d be starring in. But that was so last week. Now here.s another movie called Chef making waves, and it sounds almost as intriguing. Even though the ridiculously well-cast drama August: Osage County still hasn.t been released . it.s coming out in November . The Weinstein Company is reteaming with its director John Wells for a character drama titled Chef. And take this with a grain of salt, given recent events, but Deadline reports Bradley Cooper is set to be the titular chef. Chances are he.ll have to postpone his Broadway revival of The Elephant Man . Working rom a seemingly clichéd script written by Steven Knight, Cooper will be playing Adam Jones, a Paris chef on the rise who temporarily throws his life into chaos with »
John Wells (August: Osage County) is closing a deal to direct Chef for The Weinstein Company. When we first reported on this project in January, Derek Cianfrance was attached to direct, but he is no longer involved.
Bradley Cooper stars as Adam Jones, a chef in Paris who ruins his reputation because of an addiction to controlled substances. He sobers up and returns to the City of Lights, determined to create the greatest restaurant in the world, with the goal of receiving three Michelin stars, a top honor in the culinary world. Omar Sy co-stars in an unspecified role.
Exclusive: After helming August: Osage County for Harvey Weinstein, John Wells is getting ready to take on another big film for The Weinstein Company. He’s making a deal to direct Chef, the Steven Knight-scripted drama that Bradley Cooper will star in next year. 3 Arts’ Erwin Stoff is producing with Double Feature Films partners Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher. Timing on this picture got skewered with Steven Spielberg’s commitment last night to direct Cooper in American Sniper. Still open for debate is whether Cooper will have time to bring a revival of The Elephant Man to Broadway. The plan was for it to open in time for Tony Awards consideration for next year, but Cooper’s schedule suddenly got very crowded and it might have to be pushed until next fall. In Chef, Cooper will play Paris chef Adam Jones, who blows his status as an up and »

In addition to the upcoming August: Osage County , Wells is best known as a writer and producer, working on television series like "ER," "The West Wing," and "Shameless".

We’re expected a more emotionally dramatic turn from Jason Statham with Eastern Promises scribe Steven Knight’s directorial debut Hummingbird. Although from the look if this French poster (blazing the alternative title of Crazy Joe), you wouldn’t think it was any different to his usual action output.
Hummingbird follows an ex-Special Forces soldier, Joey Jones, who has recently returned from Afghanistan but finds himself with a desperate position, along with his pregnant girlfriend, of being homeless and living amongst the garbage-filled back alley’s of London. However, after a run in with an urban gang he luckily finds work as an enforcer for the criminal underworld but reinvents himself as a nothing-to-lose vigilante when his lover’s body, carrying his unborn child, is found dumped.

Check out the fifth poster, a French version for Lionsgate's Hummingbird ("Crazy Joe"), starring Jason Statham in the Steven Knight thriller. Well. at least this one's more interesting, and colorful and the other somewhat boring posters we've added for the film. Also with Ian Pirie, Vicky McClure, Siobhan Hewlett, Benedict Wong, Senem Temiz and Lee Asquith-Coe., Hummingbird stars Statham as a damaged ex-Special Forces soldier on the run from a military court martial who navigates London's criminal underworld, and seizes an opportunity to assume another man's identity -- transforming into an avenging angel in the process. »
If you’ve been looking forward to Jason Statham’s return to British action-thriller territory this year, it looks like you’re going to have a slightly longer wait than expected, with Lionsgate confirming that Hummingbird is now set for release in June.
Steven Knight’s anticipated film was originally to be released on our shores in mid-May, but the studio have released a newly revised trailer and quad poster, confirming that its new release date will be 28th June here in the UK.
Living on the streets after going on the run from a military court-martial, Joey (Statham) is a damaged ex-special forces soldier trapped in London’s criminal underworld. But when opportunity enables him to assume another man’s identity, he is transformed into an avenging angel.

Previously, we bought you the first stylish poster for Jason Statham vigilante thriller, Hummingbird, with the Brit star teaming up with Eastern Promises scribe Steven Knight, who’s making his directorial debut. The emotionally brutal film will be unlike most efforts starring the action hero, with a dark story centring on an ex-Special Forces soldier returning from Afghanistan, who comes home to discover he’s homeless and his pregnant girlfriend is soon murdered. Unhinged on the streets of London, he makes it his mission to wash away the scum of the city. We’re thinking Taxi Driver meets Death Wish.
