Downey Jr cooks Chef with Favreau

Robert Downey Jr could be reunited with his Iron Man director and co-star Jon Favreau in indie comedy Chef.

The pair are said to be teaming up for the culinary comedy, which Jon will direct and star in, reported Variety.

Jon, who has also written the screenplay, is set to portray a chef who decides to start up a food truck after losing his job, with Robert taking an undisclosed role.

Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo and Bobby Cannavale also have parts in the movie.

"Setting a film in the culinary world of Los Angeles offers wonderful opportunities for a character driven comedy," Jon said.

Production on Chef is expected to start in July in Los Angeles.

Jon and Robert previously worked together on the Iron Man movies, with Jon directing the first two films. He also stars as Robert's alter-ego Tony Stark's chauffeur Happy Hogan.
