Movie capital of the world finally got its long hands on the symbol of capitalistic world – fast food chain of restaurants McDonald’s. There is a talk of movie under alleged working title “The Founder”, which will tell the story of how the empire of hamburgers was built. The script is written by Robert D. Siegel, known for his work on The Wrestler. It’s telling the story of Ray Kroc, a businessman from the state of Illinois who arrived in South California and discovered a small cafe (McDonald’s), founded by Mac and Dick McDonalds. Ray quickly realized the potential of the cafe and offered the brothers to merge and create a franchise, an offer they couldn’t refuse. The first franchise restaurant was opened in Ray’s homeland of Illinois in 1955 and soon the chain spread all over U.S.. In 1961 Kroc bought out all the rights for the franchise and built the most successful chain of fast food restaurants in the world. John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks) is appointed as the director of the film and it is promised to be a mix of There Will Be Blood and Social Network. Though it is not crystal clear who is going to play the main role and when the shooting is going to start, the whole concept sounds interesting to me, let’s see how it will work out!
