Chef is premiering today at the SXSW festival. There’s no trailer yet, but a clip has been released, via Buzzfeed, and you can watch it in the YouTube player below.
The film marks Jon Favreau’s return to non-fantasy film directing for the first time since Made, his debut in 2001. He’s never really stopped making comedies, however, with only Cowboys and Aliens really failing to strike the funny bone with real regularity.
Okay. Promising. Let’s see how SXSW react tonight.
Fans of the fantasy stuff should be pleased that Favreau is next making a live action version of The Jungle Book which, thanks to some talking animals, sits just inside the genre.
