Richard Linklater will direct a movie version of the book that started it all. I can't imagine the plot. Do you think the cows will rise up against their oppressors in some sci-fi twist?
Cinematical: "Richard Linklater is so back, it's not even funny. He's got one summer blockbuster candidate (Bad News Bears) in the can, and one sci-fi art film (A Scanner Darkly) in post, and this fall he'll direct an adaptation of Eric Schlosser's non-fiction phenomenon Fast Food Nation, starring Oscar nominee Catalina Sandino Moreno. Variety is calling the project a 'fictionalized thriller'; Jeremy Thomas and Sex Pistols impresario Malcolm McLaren will produce for Thomas' Hanway Films, and shooting will begin this fall."
