Movie Coming About Cheetos
Just when I thought they would finally run out of ideas of things to make movies about, this comes along. No kidding, a film is in the works about your favorite cheesy snack.
Eva Longoria will direct “Flamin’ Hot”, a biopic about Richard Montanez, who invented Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
The son of a Mexican immigrant, Richard rose from humble beginnings working as a janitor at Frito Lay. This is a touching and powerful story of not only a man going from rags to riches, but also of the saving of a major company at the same time.
While he was working as a custodian, is when he developed the idea for the now-iconic snack, which was inspired by the flavors of his community.
The spicy Cheetos not only revitalized Frito Lay, but disrupted the food industry and created a pop culture phenomenon.
