Deadline is reporting that Eva Longoria’s upcoming directorial debut, a Cheetos-focused biopic titled Flamin’ Hot, has found its leads in Jesse Garcia (Quinceañera) and Annie Gonzalez (Gentefied). Garcia will play Richard Montanez, a former janitor for Frito Lay who came up with the concept of the insanely-popular Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, while Gonzalez will portray his wife. The story sounds as though it will explore how Garcia overcame the odds and, as a Mexican janitor who couldn’t read or write and who had doors slammed on him, “succeeded in a world that tells you no” (Eva Longoria, via EW).
