Story is based on an original idea and screenplay by Favreau. Karen Gilchrist and Aldamisa co-chairman Sergei Bespalov will produce, while Aldamisa and Mark Manuel’s Kilburn Media will finance.
Story follows a man who loses his chef job and starts up a food truck to reclaim his artistic promise and estranged family at the same time. Open Road Films will distribute.
Favreau broke the news by tweeting a Vine video labeled “new castmembers” that featured Hoffman.
