comScore Bradley Cooper Replaced by Jamie Dimon in Upcoming Chef Film

Bradley Cooper Joined by 50 Shades of Grey Star in Upcoming Chef Film

Remember a year ago when two competing Chef films were slated for production? The Jon Favreau one already came out, but the second one — the one with Bradley Cooper — just got an update: it’s not going to be “the one with only Bradley Cooper.” anymore.

Radio Times announced that Cooper will be co-starring with Jamie Dornan, the star of the upcoming movie 50 Shades of Grey. Yes, that one. And, frankly, it’s a good move for Dornan: few male actors wanted to take the role of Christian Grey due to the fear of being involved in a 50 Shades of Grey movie, but Dornan is now acting alongside Emma Thompson in this new film! So he wins pretty big.

In addition, the film is now titled Adam Jones in order to avoid being confused with Favreau’s Chef, and is about “a hot-shot chef who returns to London in search of a third Michelin star after a stint away from the kitchen.”

Bradley Cooper’s next role is a talking raccoon.

UPDATE: Our apologies — Cooper is still in the film, which means double the sexy.
