The movie based on the 1976 Formula 1 season encapsulating the battle for the title between James Hunt and Niki Lauda has been announced to be released in September next year.
‘Rush’, for which the screenplay is written by Peter Morgan and directed by two-time Oscar winner Ron Howard, stars Chris Hemsworth (of 'Thor' fame) as Hunt and Daniel Bruhl as Lauda.
“Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed - handsome English playboy Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Lauda,” mentioned the movie’s official website.
“Taking us into their personal lives on and off the track, Rush follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. If you make one mistake, you die.”
Filming for the movie has been completed – shot in U.K., Germany and Austria – and is currently in its post-production stage, an admittedly complicated process for the filmmakers due to the efforts required in the sound department.
