Default Ron Howard is making a racing movie

Rush @ IMDB

Ron Howard Talks Size and Scope of F1 Racing Drama RUSH

Quote:
Question: Back in October, producer Brian Oliver told Collider that Rush is definitely going to have some exciting photography and do things that have never been seen before. What are you hoping to do visually with the film, to capture the speed and feeling of the Formula One races?

RON HOWARD: Well, itís based on a true story and itís centered around the 1976 Formula One race season. It operates on so many different levels that I really need to use the medium, in pre-production, production and post-production, to try to immerse the audiences in that world. Itís such a fascinating, sexy, dangerous time. So, while Peter Morgan has written the script, and itís emotional, funny and character-driven, first and foremost, I think that the sense of the time, the place, the world, the speed and the danger of it, is all going to be made so much more possible, due to the range of options that technology is giving me, as a filmmaker.

Itís also allowing me to make the movie for a much more reasonable price. Itís not an inexpensive film, but for the scope and scale and what weíre going to be able to present to audiences, I think weíre doing it very, very efficiently. Itís basically an independent film. In the places where weíre really trying to capture the feeling of Grand Prix racing, I think weíre going to get something really unique and cool, effective, honest and authentic out there.

I hope he watched grand prix before even deciding to take on the task. I set the bar pretty high.. Most movies try to draw the car crowd in, and fail horribly with the movie.
