Hear us out.

Fox Searchlight and DeVon Franklin just green-lit a film, Flamin' Hot, about the famed Cheetos snack. The movie will follow the rags-to-riches story of Richard Montañez, the son of a Mexican immigrant who invented the spicy rendition of the Cheeto.

Variety reports that Montañez started out picking grapes on a migrant farm in Southern California before he was hired to work as a janitor at Frito-Lay. And it was while working there that he proposed the idea for Flamin' Hot Cheetos, which later moved him up the ladder to land a job as a corporate executive. The snack went on to be super popular as well; Katy Perry even dressed up dressed up as one for Halloween in 2014.


But there's no stopping Twitter's ridicule re: a film based on the invention of spicy Cheetos.
