Eva Longoria To Direct Biopic About Flamin' Hot Cheetos Inventor

A biopic about the inventor of Flamin' Hot Cheetos is slated to begin filming soon and Eva Longoria is officially on board as its director. Richard Montañez was a janitor at Frito-Lay when he came up with the idea for Flamin' Hot Cheetos and they've been a snack staple ever since. Montañez was inspired by his Mexican heritage which is what helped him come up with the spice mix that coats Flamin' Hot chips today. This is impactful because both Jesse and Annie are Mexican-American actors, a detail that Eva told Variety is important to the storyline. Flamin' Hot: The Incredible True Story of One Man's Rise from Janitor to Top Executive will be available on June 15.
