"I knew Sanders was a real man, but I had no idea how many jobs he had, how many failures, how many challenges, but the biggest surprise was that he was around 65-year-old when he set out to franchise his chicken," Guerriero said in a statement. "It is an incredible story of perseverance and faith."

Guerriero also expressed that she is honoured and trilled that Margaret and Colonel Sanders' family have entrusted her to bring the story to the screen.

"To anyone who's ever wanted to quit or been fired or felt they were too old to pursue a dream, or for anyone who has a complicated relationship with a family member I feel strongly this is a story that will not only inspire and resonate, but it will entertain," she added.

The movie is being penned by Cheryl Guerriero who wrote Justin Timberlake's "Palmer"
