Jon Favreau’s Chef Movie Facing Financing Lawsuit


The indie flick about a chef who loses his job and launches a food truck could be in trouble: Two companies are financing the movie, and one is suing the other for fraud. A judge had issued an injunction forbidding Providence Films from accessing funds from the joint account. The movie stars Jon Favreau’s Iron Man 2 co-stars Scarlett Johansson and Robert Downey Jr., as well as Dustin Hoffman, Amy Sedaris, and Sofia Vergara. Maybe Favreau’s celebrity-chef mentors can help finance: Wolgang Puck’s got the cash. [Earlier, THR]
