From Book To Film: ‘Fast Food Nation’ Coming To Theaters

Filed under: Celebrity — @ November 9, 2006

Culture-altering shockwaves set to land in movie theaters on November 17

In 2003, the cinematic world was shocked into reality with the highly-acclaimed release of independent filmmaker Morgan Spurlock’s eye-opening documentary Super Size Me. The ripple effects from that film are still being felt to this day as McDonald’s and other fast food restaurants are making certain changes to address the problems that were exposed in Spurlock’s masterpiece.

Well, it’s about to happen again in late 2006. Based on the 2001 New York Times bestselling book by Eric Schlosser entitled Fast Food Nation comes a movie that is much more than a documentary. Instead of taking the same tactic that Spurlock used for his film, Schlosser brought on director Richard Linklater to creative a compelling narrative based on the book. The end result will be coming to the silver screen on November 17, 2006.


Unlike Spurlock’s movie, this one has some familiar faces that moviegoers will recognize, including Patricia Arquette, Bobby Cannavale, Luis Guzman, Ethan Hawke, Ashley Johnson, Greg Kinnear, Kris Kristofferson, Avril Lavigne (her Hollywood acting debut), Esai Morales, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Lou Taylor Pucci, Ana Claudia Talancon and Wilmer Valderrama.
