Written by Robert Siegel (Big Fan), The Founder is a drama that tells the true story of how Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton), a salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California. Kroc was impressed by the brothers’ speedy system of making the food and saw franchise potential. He maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire.
This looks like another solid performance in Keaton’s carer resurgence. The film stars Michael Keaton Laura Dern, Nick Offerman, John Carroll Lynch, and Patrick Wilson, and is set for a November 25, 2016 release.
