22 Mar – Did you know that there is soon to be a movie about the life of the old man in the logo of your favourite KFC restaurant?
Yes, screenwriter Cheryl Guerriero recently revealed that she is currently adapting the book "The Colonel's Secret: Eleven Herbs and a Spicy Daughter" by Margaret Sanders, which depicted the life of the KFC founder, Colonel Harland Sanders.
Guerriero reportedly will produce the film, titled, "A Finger Lickin' Good Story: The Life of Colonel Sanders" along with Meridian Pictures, and will feature how the Colonel built the Kentucky Fried Chicken as well as his complicated relationship with his daughter.
"I knew Sanders was a real man, but I had no idea how many jobs he had, how many failures, how many challenges, but the biggest surprise was that he was around 65-year-old when he set out to franchise his chicken," Guerriero said in a statement. "It is an incredible story of perseverance and faith."
Guerriero also expressed that she is honoured and trilled that Margaret and Colonel Sanders' family have entrusted her to bring the story to the screen.
"To anyone who's ever wanted to quit or been fired or felt they were too old to pursue a dream, or for anyone who has a complicated relationship with a family member I feel strongly this is a story that will not only inspire and resonate, but it will entertain," she added.
