Richard Montanez, the man who went from factory janitor to top-level executive after inventing Flamin' Hot Cheetos, is getting his own biopic.
According to Variety, FOX Searchlight and producer DeVon Franklin will bring the film to life. It will center on how Montanez went from picking grapes to a Frito-Lay janitor to the head of their Hispanic marketing team. The current working title for the movie is "Flamin' Hot," after the iconic snack Montanez created that became one of Frito-Lay's top-selling products.
There's no specific timetable as to when the movie will come out, but there's been at least one suggestion online for who should play the role of Richard Montanez.
