KFC makes a lifelong movie starring Mario Lopez as Colonel Sanders

If all you wanted for this holiday season was the origin story of KFC’s Colonel Sanders, you’re in luck. Lifetime has released a mini-movie titled “Recipe of Temptation” starring Mario Lopez as a young Sanders.Revealed via official Lifetime Twitter account, This movie will premiere on December 13th at 3:00 pm (Eastern Standard Time) / 12:00 pm (Pacific Standard Time).

Subsequent trailers were released and Mario Lopez was introduced as the young Harland Sanders. He hasn’t sported his characteristic white hair yet, but it looks like salt and pepper. In typical lifelong cinematic fashion, the film seems to have many spicy moments, such as dangerous love triangles and revelations of Sanders’ “secret recipes that change the world.” But KFC is no stranger to the unexpected medium crossover. At the end of last year, the company released a free anime-style romance simulator, “I Love You, Colonel Sanders,” on Steam. This allows players to romance the Colonel himself, albeit in a much younger version.

Earlier this year, KFC opened an island in Animal Crossing. The island included a virtual restaurant and free chicken coupons available in the real world outside of virtual life. Oh, and don’t forget the fried chicken scented Firelog KFC released last year in time for the holidays. What’s next to the Colonel? Kentucky Fried Collaboration for some new shoes? Oh wait, he’s already done it with Chicken Crocs. Well, whatever it is, it will surely surprise us.
