Just like The Social Network, McDonald’s will be telling the story of how it rose to become the biggest fast food restaurant in the world.
The movie will be called The Founder and John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks) is reportedly in negotiations to direct it. THR describes the upcoming movie as:
The Founder is a drama that tells the true story of how Ray Kroc, a salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California. Kroc was impressed by the brothers’ speedy system of making the food and saw franchise potential. He manoeuvred himself in a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire.
