Have you always wanted to learn how McDonald’s came to be?
My, well. You...are in luck.
Come the fall, Michael Keaton will court Oscar again, when he stars as Ray Kroc in The Founder, the story of how a milkshake-mixer salesman sweet-talked two brothers from San Bernardino, Calif., Mac and Dick McDonald, into franchising their successful hamburger stand, only to cheat them out of the business and of about $200 million by pretending to have come up with the McDonald’s concept all on his own.
You know, the American way.
The Founder will find its way into theaters on Aug. 5. A trailer is imminent.
