Being a chef has now officially been catapulted to the “glamour jobs” category with the upcoming film “No Reservations” . Not to be confused with Tony Bourdain’s gritty tv series, this Hollywood flick is a remake of the film “Mostly Martha” and stars Welsh actress Catherine Zeta Jones as guess what? A celeb chef , of course.
Also in the cast as Catharine’s love interest is Aaron Eckhart, who you may have seen in a few episodes of Frasier, Any Given Sunday and The Core; and Patricia Clarkson, one of my favourite Indie actresses, who also appeared in HBO’s Six Feet Under.
In case you were curious, here’s how Jason Buchanan from All Movie Guide describes the film (to be released in Summer 2007):
Carol Fuchs adapts writer/director Sandra Nettlebeck’s screenplay for the 2001 romantic drama Mostly Martha for this Scott Hicks directed re-make starring Catherine Zeta Jones, Aaron Eckhart, and Patricia Clarkson. When emotionally fragile chef Kate (Zeta Jones) is unexpectedly named the guardian of her young niece, her blossoming relationship with sous chef Nick (Eckhart) helps to put her newfound responsibility into perspective.
