Open Road's upcoming dramatic comedy Chef was selected to open the 2014 SXSW film festival tonight! We have your first look with a clip and three new photos from this tale about a chef who starts up a new food truck venture. Featuring a stellar cast that includes Jon Favreau (who wrote, directed, and stars in the comedy), Sofía Vergara, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt, Emjay Anthony, Scarlett Johansson, and Robert Downey Jr., Chef is in theaters nationwide May 9.
When Chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) suddenly quits his job at a prominent Los Angeles restaurant after refusing to compromise his creative integrity for its controlling owner (Dustin Hoffman), he is left to figure out what's next. Finding himself in Miami, he teams up with his ex-wife (Sofía Vergara), his friend (John Leguizamo) and his son to launch a food truck. Taking to the road, Chef Carl goes back to his roots to reignite his passion for the kitchen -- and zest for life and love.
