In the last two years, Michael Keaton has become an award season staple, and already we’re seeing the makings of what could be round three for him.
The Founder tells the story of Ray Kroc (played by Keaton), a salesman from Illinois who expanded the business started by Richard and Maurice McDonald and turned it into the food giant we know today. The first poster for The Founder has just been released, and it teases the cynical edge to the biopic with the tagline, “He took someone else’s idea, and America ate it up.”
The Blind Side‘s John Lee Hancock directed The Founder, which is based on a script by Robert D. Siegel (The Wrestler, Big Fan). The film co-stars Nick Offerman, Linda Cardellini, Laura Dern, BJ Novak, and John Caroll Lynch and hits theaters on August 5.
