“Adam Jones” Casting Update

The Wrap is reporting that several actors, including Emma Thompson and Daniel Bruhl joined the cast of “Adam Jones“. It was previously announced that Sienna Miller and Omar Sy joined the cast.

Emma Thompson, Daniel Bruhl, Alicia Vikander and Lily James have joined the film, formerly titled “Chef”

John Wells is directing from a screenplay by Steven Knight. Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher are producing with Erwin Stoff.

Dornan’s casting was first revealed by the Daily Mail, which reports that the film’s title has changed from “Chef” to “Adam Jones,” likely due to confusion with Jon Favreau’s indie hit “Chef.”

Cooper will star as a hot-shot chef who returns to London in search of a third Michelin star after stepping away from the kitchen for several years.

Details of Dornan’s role remain under wraps.

Emma Thompson and up-and-coming talents such as Lily James (“Cinderella”) and “The Fifth State” stars Daniel Bruhl and Alicia Vikander have also joined the cast, which includes Sienna Miller and Omar Sy.

Dornan’s past feature credits include Sofia Coppola’s “Marie Antoinette,” though he’s best known for playing a serial killer on “The Fall” and a sheriff on “Once Upon a Time.”
