Who’s up for some cooking? Bradley Cooper is! The trailer for his upcoming film, Burnt, was released a few hours ago and it looks promising. Directed by John Wells, this dramedy tells the story of Adam Jones (Cooper), a two-star Michelin rockstar chef who will work non-stop to achieve one thing: have his own kitchen and get that third elusive Michelin star. To accomplish this, he will need the best of the best. According to the press release, “BURNT is a remarkably funny and emotional story about the love of food, the love between two people, and the power of second chances”.
As a little fun fact, this is not the first time Cooper has been in a kitchen: he played celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain in the 2005 13-episode FOX sitcom Kitchen Confidential. Might this be another Oscar nomination for Mr. Cooper? I guess we’ll find out soon.
Burnt was written by Steven Knight and has a great cast that includes Sienna Miller, Omar Sy, Emma Thompson, Daniel Brühl, Jamie Dornan, Alicia Vikander, Uma Thurman and Lily James. The film is set to open on October 23.
