"Swingers" writer and "Iron Man 2" director John Favreau has brought his production of "Chef" to Austin. The multi-hyphenate’s new film follows a chef who quits his job and chases his dream as a food truck operator. The shoot has already rolled through New Orleans, with the fictional food truck El Jefe Cubanos in tow. Traveling with Favreau is chef Roy Choi, the man behind L.A. food truck Kogi BBQ.
Favreau shot at Franklin Barbecue earlier today and is headed to Guero’s, we’re told. Statesman reporter Gary Dinges also says there are rumors that "Chef" star Scarlett Johansson has been spotted around town.
