Anthony Bourdain’s life will be coming to movie theaters.
CNN confirmed to Vanity Fair last week that it’s collaborating with Zero Point Zero, the production company behind Bourdain’s wildly popular shows, to create “the definitive Bourdain feature documentary.”

Bourdain started his career as a chef. After becoming a bestselling author, he was the host of hugely successful shows on the Travel Channel and CNN.
