With SXSW in full effect, director Jon Favreau’s new comedy “Chef” is making its world premiere in Texas. The film is also slated for a slot during this year’s Tribeca Film Festival in New York City, while opening in theaters this May. Open Road Films just released a new clip from the comedy that features a Twitter battle.
When Miami-born chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) tries and fails to open a restaurant in Los Angeles, he returns to Miami to fix up a food truck he names El Jefe Cubanos and reacquaints with his ex-wife (Sofía Vergara). He plans to drive across the country to reclaim his success in L.A.
The comedy stars Jon Favreau, Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sofía Vergara, Dustin Hoffman, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, Garry Shandling, Amy Sedaris, and Oliver Platt.
“Chef” opens in theaters everywhere on May 9th.
