‘The Americans’ Star Matthew Rhys Boards Bradley Cooper’s Chef Movie

“The Americans” actor Matthew Rhys has joined Bradley Cooper’s chef drama, formerly titled “Adam Jones,” for The Weinstein Company.

Principal photography started last month in New Orleans, then shifted to London from July 27 to Sept. 26.

Cast includes Uma Thurman, Sienna Miller, Daniel Bruhl, Riccardo Scamarcio, Emma Thompson, Lily James, Omar Sy, Jamie Dornan, Sam Keeley, Sarah Greene and Alicia Vikander.

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

Rhys is repped by WME and Management 360 in the U.S., and United Agents in the U.K. News was first reported by Deadline.com.
