Fast Food Nation film director speaks

As we mentioned here a month ago, Eric Schlosser's book Fast Food Nation is being made into a movie by director Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, Before Sunrise/Sunset, and School of Rock). Linklater, in an interview with Empire Online, has now revealed a little bit more about how he plans to turn a book that is a non-fiction expose into a feature film:
"Eric Schlosser and I, we wrote the script, kind of based on a town in Colorado where all the various sides are represented. It's sort of the human effects of that industry; I guess that's how you'd describe it. ...It's the teenagers who work at the fast food places, and immigrant labourers who come across the border, working in the packing plants, and an executive."
