Film maker Ron Howard entertains fans at The Austin Starting Grid Luncheon
Hollywood legend and two-time Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard delighted a capacity crowd in the Austin (Texas) Hilton Ballroom by previewing a five-minute clip of his much-anticipated Formula One film Rush, due in theaters on Sept. 20th, 2013. The script was written by Peter Morgan, who collaborated with Howard on A Beautiful Mind.
Howard shared the behind-the-scenes story of his new epic-action drama, Rush. The film, set for release in September 2013, tells the real-life story of Formula 1 drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the racetrack epitomized the contrast between two extraordinary characters, a distinction also reflected in their personal lives.
