Jamie Oliver's quest to bring healthier school lunches to the children of Los Angeles might have been met with significant hurdles, but he inspired some of the right people -- his story is going to be adapted into a movie, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Ryan Seacrest is co-producing the film (he also produced Oliver's "Food Revolution"). The Hollywood Reporter has more:
The story centers on a hot Los Angeles chef known for his popular gourmet food truck who gets into trouble and is sentenced to work at a school. The chef revamps the lunch program with a ragtag group of kids.
Will Ferrell and Sean William Scott are apparently on the short list to play Oliver.
Between this and the "Blood, Bones & Butter" adaptation, it seems like Hollywood sees a future in food films.
