A hollywood friend just told me me RUSH is a wrap which means the shooting has ended I think. So now it's a question when will it hit the screens? I think it means the shooting is done and now they begin the editing process.

I read somewhere it was meant to hit the screens before Xmas in order to be in pole position for the Oscars. Of course it will probably be released one market region at a time to have maximum impact globally in much the same way as Senna was.

I can't believe filming has finished yet. Ron Howard's facebook page shows photos from only yesterday, trying different fireproof balaclavas on a model to try and get the correct 70s look...and other photos of him at the weekend, studying lots of period photographs spread all over the floor.

Filming has not really started on this one yet. Lots of pre-production currently in progress and some test-shoots done last year with Rob Austin (amongst others) at the 'Ring.

Not sure its true, but heard Danny Devito or Joe Pesci was up for the role of Teddy Mayer.

If anyone is into films or motorsport then you've GOT to follow @RealRonHoward on Twiiter - its a day-by-day account of a film in production.

Imagine Frankenheimer had Twitter 40+ years ago whilst filming Grand Prix

I stand corrected.

On 11/09/11 in an article in Variety Magazine Ron Howard said RUSH had already been sold in 30 markets a year ahead of its release.

http://www.variety.c...le/VR1118045913

Ron Howard recently said he watched "Senna" seven times.

Production actually started on Sept. 7, 2011.

No by surfing the web looking for anything on RUSH and Ron Howard. Those links are the articles I found this afternoon. I'll keep looking. :up:

They are trying to get Russell Crowe to play Richard Burton.

Yes, but that is a goddam awful title. It'll lump it in with 'Driven' and other such trash.

I'd like 'Rivalry', 'Modern gladiators', Clash of the F1 titans' or 'The summer of discontent' or something more artsy farty.

It's not the title that makes 'Driven' a bad film.

I can foresee thousands of Canadian heavy rock fans turning up to see a film called 'Rush'.

Wouldn't just be Canadian fans given the band are ranked 3rd globally in terms of consecutive gold or platinum albums after the Beatles and Stones.
Perhaps Geddy, Alex & Neil could write the soundtrack to Rush the film :up:

No idea what Niki drove (a Beemer?) but James always seemed be be absolutely hammering a 911 whenever I saw him in Spain. I wonder who will play James dog, "Oscar"? :cool:

I just started to read the tweets of Ron Howard, and I´m really impressed how comitted he is with that film. And it almost makes me laugh to see him being surprised like a little child finding some facts most of us know for many years. For example that the Lauda-Crash-Film was taken by a young boy, who was 12 at that time as far as I know.

As an Austrian I really like this project about one of the greatest legends of all times (not only in racing-scene). It reminds me of a man with a exceptional life as three-times-world-champion, almost dead after fire-crash, airliner handling a crash of one of his passenger-planes and so on...

The pilot of that Air Lauda flight was Thomas J. Welch the son of American Airline pilot Bob Welch. Bob was a prominent SCCA driver in a Formula B Brabham BT-29 in the very competitive NE Region. A very tragic day on many levels for some of us SCCA racers in the day.

If I remember it correctly, Lauda did have a Mercedes 450 SEL 6.9.
I am not sure, if he had that in ´76, but that car was not uncommon in F1 paddocks at that time.

I remember Motor Sport (or was it Autocar?) printing a list of "who drives what", sometime in the mid to late 70s, and the Merc was definitely the car of choice.

A similar listing was in German Auto, Motor und Sport at that time.
MB was very active in marketing their cars in F1 circles.
Impossible to imagine today that Alonso would be allowed to arrive in a S-Class.

My first thought was Mygale FF but then looking at the wing's and high sides around the suspension I'd go for Dallara F3 but not sure of the exact year of model.

All that low centre of gravity and polar moment thinking from the tres cool Spazznave beginning to pay off me thinks.

I've not seen those comments attributed to NL about the 312 T2 before rallen.

I understand the car in the photo at Brands was the brand new for the British Grand Prix chassis #028 which Niki was credited as driving to second place, two weeks later this was the same car Niki drove when I saw him, unfortunately with out a camera to hand, at the Nurburgring.

So there is another movie project about Lauda?

Just like buses. You wait 35 years for one to arrive and then two appear....

This does happen a lot with Hollywood, there were two movies about Trueman Capote made at the same time a few years ago, not to mention the 'new version' of Robin Hood which appears almost every year...

Back in 1992 there were at least three films made about Columbus, I seem to recall. Maybe more?
