Go behind the scenes of Ron Howard's great looking Formula One film Rush in this new featurette. Howard is an incredible filmmaker, and this looks like it's going to be one of the better films he's made over the years. I'm really excited about this, and I'm not even a Formula One fan. I've never watched the sport, but this story they're telling is sure to make a fantastic movie. The featurette includes new footage from the film, and the talent involved with bringing the movie to life discuss the story and characters.
It's based on a true story that focuses on the intense rivalry of two drivers, James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl). As you'll see, it's going to be incredibly exciting!
Rush opens up in theaters on September 20th, 2013.
RUSH is an upcoming biographical action-drama film directed by two-time Oscar winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), who teams once again with fellow two-time Oscar nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), about the 1976 Formula One season and the rivalry between drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda.
The film stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives. Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader) also star in the film.
