Scarlett Johansson Joins Jon Favreau’s Chef

Actress Scarlett Johansson attends the "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof" Broadway opening night after party at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers on January 17, 2013 in New York City.

Jon Favreau's Chef might be the director's return to doing smaller, indie movies, but the cast sure still reads like a big action movie. After casting Robert Downey Jr., Variety reports he just added Scarlett Johansson — making it a little Iron Man 2 reunion. The film stars Favreau as a chef who loses his restaurant job and opens a food truck. Johansson will play that restaurant's manager and potential love interest, who may or may not also be an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
