Bradley Cooper's 'Burnt' Scraps Limited Bow, Still to Open Nationwide Oct. 23

Bradley Cooper in 'Burnt'

John Wells directed the cooking dramedy.

The Weinstein Co. is scrapping plans to release John Wells' cooking dramedy Burnt, starring Bradley Cooper, in a limited run on Oct. 23, but will still open the film nationwide on Oct. 30.

Burnt stars Cooper as a bad-boy chef looking to redeem himself by cooking for a top restaurant in London.

The star-studded cast also includes Sienna Miller, Matthew Rhys, Omar Sy, Jamie Dornan, Emma Thompson, Daniel Bruhl, Alicia Vikander and Lily James.

Originally titled Chef, the film was renamed in order to avoid being confused with Jon Favreau's indie sensation of the same name.

Wells shot Burnt in summer 2014.
