The comedy centers on a disgraced chef (Bradley Cooper) who loses his prestigious restaurant in Paris. He decides to bring his old crew back together in an attempt to create the world's greatest restaurant in London. No details were given for Omar Sy's character, although this will be the French actor's first English-language film. Here's what Bradley Cooper had to say about the project on the French radio station RTL.
"We've been talking about this project. I want to do it. It's a beautiful story. And I love cooking."
However, the project may have to be put on the back burner, due to the actor's schedule.
"I'm going to make another film in March and after that I think I'm going to take a break and stay in Paris for Roland Garros (the tennis tournament set in late May)."
Derek Cianfrance is directing from a screenplay by Steven Knight (Eastern Promises). If a deal is finalized, the project will reunite Bradley Cooper with Derek Cianfrance, who directed him in the upcoming drama The Place Beyond the Pines.
