Jon Favreau Teases New Filmed Project With Chef Roy Choi (Video)

4 May 2017 5:33 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jon Favreau is cooking up something new with renowned chef and Los Angeles institution Roy Choi. Favreau, who tapped Choi as a co-producer on the 2014 Open Road indie “Chef,”  said he’s been rolling footage on a new project that will go public soon. “I’m filming some stuff now, it’s something I’m doing on my own and I’m not actually sure what form it’s going to take,” Favreau said this week, at an event for the Los Angeles Times Food Bowl — a monthlong celebration of the L.A.’s culinary scene.

Jon Favreau, ‘Chef’s Table’ Director David Gelb Discuss Capturing Food on Film

3 May 2017 9:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Foodies and film lovers descended upon the Wiltern Theater Sunday night to celebrate the kick-off of Foodbowl, the L.A. Times’ month-long food festival.

The event, cleverly dubbed Chef’s Fable, featured several notable chefs and the filmmakers who told their stories.

The conversation was moderated by Times restaurant critic Jonathan Gold. It kicked off with a panel on “Chef’s Table,” the popular Netflix food documentary series, now in its third season.

“Chefs just inherently have amazing stories because of all the hard work and all the risk. The creative journey a chef takes makes them great subjects for film,” explained “Chef’s Table” director David Gelb.

“I love the show ‘Planet Earth.’ I thought it was cool to apply that look to food,” Gelb said of his subject matter. “The food is beautiful and its an art form so it should have the same kind of reference in the way it’s captured.”

Jon Favreau Cooked This Dish He Learned from Chef Roy Choi ‘Every Day for Three Months’

2 May 2017 12:24 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Since creating and starring in the foodie film Chef two years ago, Jon Favreau‘s cooking chops have definitely improved.

“I’m not as good as I am in the movie, but I’m pretty good for just a casual cook,” Favreau told People. “I can definitely put together a good meal.” But the one thing that the actor-writer-director loves more than cooking on his own, is cooking with other chefs. “You learn so much,” explained Favreau, 50, who recruited La-based chef, Roy Choi, as a consultant and producer for the movie.

“I love working and cooking with Roy, and we »

Tribeca: Jon Favreau on 'Lion King' Fans' Expectations, 'Cowboys and Aliens' Disappointment

23 April 2017 9:26 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

When Scarlett Johansson and Jon Favreau sat down for a Q&A at the Tribeca Film Festival on Friday, the two reminisced about their multiple collaborations, including Iron Man 2, Chef and The Jungle Book.

And they opened up about dealing with failure.

While Johansson was the interviewer for this exchange — and the actress came well-prepared with a legal pad full of detailed questions — she delivered a few noteworthy asides. In particular, she alluded to the poor performance of The Ghost in the Shell when she introduced a question about some of Favreau's poorly received films, name-checking Cowboys and Aliens.

Jon Favreau’s 7 Rules for Making a Good Movie, from ‘The Jungle Book’ to ‘The Lion King’

22 April 2017 12:39 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

On Friday night, Scarlett Johansson morphed from one of our biggest female action stars to interlocutor for the first of the Tribeca Talks: Directors Series. Having made “Iron Man 2,”  “Chef,” and “The Jungle Book” together, Favreau and Johansson enjoyed easy comradery, and the Queens-born filmmaker was eager to entertain the room.

Johansson, checking hand-written notes on her old-school legal pad — Favreau admired her penmanship — coaxed out some excellent rules for making good movies, both indie and studio.

1. Directing is like being a good parent.

When Favreau’s son described what his father does, he said: “He sits in a chair and watches television.” That’s true on set, said Favreau, who looks intently at each take on a video monitor, and helps his actors, who shoot out of continuity, keep track of where they are in the script. He compared being a director to being a parent. “I love my kids, »

The 2017 Tribeca Film Festival is underway in New York City, and unlike other film festivals some of the more sought-after events at Tribeca are the conversations they host between artists.

Here’s How to Cook Some of the Most Popular Foods from South Park

19 April 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

In what’s become easily one of my top five favorite Youtube channels “Binging with Babish” is back with another hearty food lesson.   This time Andrew Rea created a special called “The Foods of South Park.” South Park is home to a surprising number of tempting foodstuffs.  Granted, they’re all subtly gross in one way or another, but that doesn’t make Chef’s Chocolate Salty Balls sound any less appealing.  Especially when it’s being sung at you by Isaac Hayes. And isn’t just the chef’s foods either.  Don’t forget about Cartman’s Mr. & Mrs. Tenorman chili.   I just wish they would have

Each year, the Tribeca Film Festival fills out its schedule with a variety of events that extend far past the typical film fest fare, including their signature Tribeca Talks program and a continuing bent towards the possibilities of Virtual Reality. This year’s slate is no different, offering up intimate chats between industry luminaries (did you know that Robert Rodriguez and Barbra Streisand are pals? they are!) and special screening opportunities for projects both new (Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s “The Vietnam War”) and classic (a “Godfather” one-two punch). There’s a little something for everyone here.

This year’s Tribeca Film Festival takes place April 19 – 30. Check out some of our must-attend events below.

I don’t know about you guys but Chef was one of my favorite all-time South Park characters and I don’t think I’m alone on this one.  Played by the legendary Isaac HayesChef will always be in our memories as one hell of a singer, mentor, and guy that just said whatever the hell he wanted on that show.  Unfortunately Isaac Hayes is no longer with us, but something came to light today that I never even realized.   While many were under the impression that when Isaac Hayes quit the show South Park that he simply quit in that it

Goodfellas” is considered by many to not only be one of Scorsese’s best films, but also one of the great cinematic achievements of all time. While cooking the meal, consisting of spaghetti and meatballs, Roberts and Unger discuss how food becomes such a pivotal element of the film, becoming a dual symbol representing two of the biggest themes found in Henry Hill’s (Ray Liotta) tale: family and power.

‘Chef’s’ Cuban Sandwiches Come to Life in ‘Film to Table’ — Watch

It’s physically impossible to watch Jon Favreau’s 2014 film “Chef” and not want to immediately want to eat every single meal shown on screen. Thanks to L/Studio’s new show “Film to Table,” you can learn exactly how to make the Cubano Sandwich Favreau’s food truck cooks up in the movie.

Jason Roberts, joined by chef Travis Flood, recreates the delicious film meal in the short five minute episode. Obviously “Chef” shows Favreau and John Leguizamo cooking up the dish fast, but Roberts and Flood slow it down to show exactly how to make the mouth-watering meal.

The two chefs also aren’t shy about expressing their love for the film, which follows Favreau’s character attempting to make it on his own in the food truck business after he quits his restaurant job. »

Rhett Reese Allays Fears That Deadpool 2 Will Repeat Iron Man 2’s Mistakes: “Our First Goal Is To Tell A Deadpool Story”

21 March 2017 8:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If Jon Favreau’s original Iron Man movie is considered to be ground zero of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then its divisive sequel, Iron Man 2, stands as a crucial stepping stone that helped bind Marvel’s grand vision together, even if the film itself suffered as a result.

That’s by no means a slight against Favreau’s direction; rather, Iron Man 2 was simply too busy teeing up various plot points that Marvel’s future-proofing came at the expense of Jon Favreau’s vision. It’s small wonder that the filmmaker broke course from Hollywood’s blockbuster scene to craft Chef, which many view to be a delicious analog to the whole situation.

Nevertheless, if you’re worried that Deadpool 2 will fall into the same trap, don’t; screenwriter Rhett Reese told Cinema Blend recently that regardless of Fox’s future plans (see: X-Force), both he and »
