Sienna Miller will play a sous chef in the new Bradley Cooper film Adam Jones.
Cooper plays the title character: a genius cook who returns to London after a period away from the kitchen, detoxifying.
Now he wants a third Michelin star, and assembles an A-list line-up to help him.
Many of the actors spent a day with Marcus Wareing at his two Michelin-starred Marcus restaurant at the Berkeley in Knightsbridge, to prepare for their roles.
Sienna practised her chopping skills, and watched how Wareing and his colleagues worked their magic with food. (The actress has been busy: she’s been shooting another film, Black Mass, with Johnny Depp, in which she has to age from 28 to 76.)
Adam Jones, which has a script by Steven Knight, will start filming soon, in and around London.
Director John Wells and his casting team, with help no doubt from producer Harvey Weinstein, have gathered a cast that includes Emma Thompson, Daniel Bruhl, Riccardo Scamarcio (Italy’s answer to Brad Pitt), Lily James, Jamie Dornan and Alicia Vikander.
