It's All in How the Dog Is Served - New York Times: "OU know those hot dogs that you know and love, and can't wait to eat this time of year? The ones served at Katz's Delicatessen, Gray's Papaya, Papaya King, the legendary Dominick's truck in Queens and the best 'dirty water dog' carts?"
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."
