Ryan Seacrest to Produce Jamie Oliver Food Film
Those who are up to date with their Ryan Seacrest trivia would know he is more than just a charming TV personality. Seacrest is also an executive producer of a range of reality TV programs including Keeping up with the Kardashians and Bromance. It seems that Seacrest has taken the next logical step and has entered the film industry. THR have revealed that Seacrest will be producing a movie loosely based on Jamie Oliver’s popular reality TV series Food Revolution.
The film, Food Fight, will follow the well tread path of an unlucky but good hearted character whose bad luck forces him into community service. The food loving man arrives at a school canteen and revamps the menu with help from a collection of rascally kids. The storyline is reminiscent of School of Rock, but with children embracing healthy, nutritious food at the hands of an unlikely hero.
Jamie Oliver is known as a crusader for healthy eating, particularly for school aged children. Food Revolution saw the famous British chef enter American cafeterias to change their menus in order to introduce healthy and delicious alternatives to deep fried fatty foods. Interestingly, Ryan Seacrest also produced Food Revolution.
The project has been lying on the Melrose Studios desk for a while now and latest reports state that David Posamentier and Geoff Moore, the writer-director team behind indie flick Better Living Through Chemistry have now been chosen to adapt the food loving film.
With cooking and food programs generating huge ratings, it’s no surprise Seacrest has chosen now to produce a film for foodies.
