The cast of The Weinstein Company's new film Adam Jones is filling out. Uma Thurman has singed on to appear alongside Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Emma Thompson, and Daniel Bruhl in the movie.

Thurman is hopping onto the project a bit late, principal photography has already started. The Weinstein Company recently changed the name of the film from Chef to Adam Jones, most likely because there is currently a film called Chef in theaters.

Here's the synopsis of the movie from The Hollywood Reporter:

The film, which was originally titled Chef, follows a rock-star chef (Cooper) who is known for his wild style and creating explosions of taste. Hoping to land his own kitchen and that elusive third Michelin star, he’ll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene (Miller).

The film will be directed by John Wells (August: Osage County, Company Men). Production will take place in both New Orleans and London.

The 44-year-old actress recently made a return to the silver screen in controversial Danish director Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac. It was her first film performance after a three year hiatus from acting following the birth of her daughter. Her role in the 2013 film was a small one but had a major impact on the tone of the story and was met with rave reviews by critics.

In the movie, Thurman played a wife whose husband cheated on her. In an extremely memorable scene, she confronts her husband and the nymphomaniac that he is having an affair with.

It's also possible that Thurman could return for another round of playing The Bride. Rumors have been circulating around Hollywood for the past few years that Quentin Tarantino is ready to start work on Kill Bill: Vol 3.
