In a role reminiscent of his 2005 stint on Fox’s Kitchen Confidential, in which he played a version of Anthony Bourdain, Bradley Cooper will play a talented but troubled chef in his next movie, Burnt.
“I don’t want my restaurant to be a place where you sit and eat,” a moody Bradley Cooper tells an underling in the film’s trailer. “I want people to sit at that table and be sick with longing.”
Here’s the film’s synopsis:
“Chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) had it all — and lost it. A two-star Michelin rock star with the bad habits to match, the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star, though, he’ll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene (Sienna Miller). Burnt is a remarkably funny and emotional story about the love of food, the love between two people, and the power of second chances.”
