It looks like Ron Howard’s next directorial project is getting some major traction. The other day it was reported that Chris Hemsworth was in talks to take on the role of James Hunt in Howard’s Formula 1 racing drama Rush, and now Inglorious Basterds star Daniel Brühl is circling the role of Hunt’s rival Niki Lauda. The film follows the heated rivalry between Austrian driver Lauda and British driver Hunt in the 1970’s.
Screen Daily (via The Playlist) reports that the plan is to start filming later this year in Germany and the U.K. once Hemsworth has wrapped Snow White and the Huntsman. Howard will direct from a screenplay by Peter Morgan (“The Queen”). (Source)
A featurette showcasing Chris Hemsworth during the filming of Marvel Studios blockbuster Thor was just released. Take a look at this new featurette clip which also includes brand new interviews with the cast from the upcoming DVD and blu-ray release. Thor becomes available on DVD and blu-ray on September 13th.
Ron Howard’s next film Rush is a biopic of the British Formula One driver and notorious playboy, and with a Peter Morgan script, a charismatic lead actor is required. Deadline report that Aussie actor Hemsworth, who got his Hollywood break in Star Trek, has been offered the part.
Talks are taking place, with a view to shoot next year. Howard will have to work around Hemsworth’s Marvel commitments, with Thor 2 officially announced for July 2013. Following his reprisal of Thor for The Avengers, Hemsworth will film Snow White and the Huntsman with Kristen Stewart later this year.
Rush will focus on Hunt’s Formula One rivalry with Niki Lauda in the 1970s, as well as his victories and colourful lovelife. The film’s production comes at a good time, with Ayrton Senna immortalised in Asif Kapadia’s documentary Senna, a huge hit at the UK box office.
Also up for consideration is I Am Number Four star Pettyfer. (Source)
In an interview with EW, producer Joe Roth (Alice in Wonderland, Oz: The Great and Powerful) explained that Snow White and the Huntsman is actually the first in a planned trilogy of films and revealed how exactly this re-imagining of the classic fairytale will be similar to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and differs from the Julia Roberts Snow White film:
“We retain the basic story in the same way we retain the basic story of Alice, a young girl meant to be the queen who is cast out. The Huntsman is a mercenary, in the sense that he’s a guy who is very able in the woods, more able than most anyone. His job is to capture runaway girls, who are all fleeing the kingdom because of the queen. He’s a nondescript bounty hunter, as we first meet him. He’s not a nice guy, but not only that he’s someone who has lost hope and lost faith. He has lost his wife, given up on everything.”
“She starts out not a damsel in distress, but innocent, and after 11 years of imprisonment by the Evil Queen, she escapes and learns the ways of a warrior in the woods.”
Snow White and the Huntsman begins shooting this coming August and is slated to hit theaters on June 1st, 2012. (Source)

Director Joss Whedon remained busy on the set of The Avengers but Marvel Studios Co-President Kevin Feige helped fan more excitement for the superheroes adventure (if that’s even possible) talking about next summer’s blockbuster with Film Journal.
“We’re making a big crossover event that brings all of these characters together to face something incredible and epic,” Feige told Film Journal.
As far as maintaining some sort of balance amongst all the Marvel characters, Feige credited Whedon for being an expert at telling ensemble stories thanks to his experience with Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
“We’re in the fifth week of production on The Avengers and all of the actors have been very impressed with him. They all carry their own movies and I think everyone was worried about who would get the short end of the stick. But no one does because they’re all there servicing the larger story. The stuff we’ve shot is cutting together spectacularly and it’s just the character interactions that we’ve done so far. We haven’t shot much of the action sequences yet. I think the end result is going to feel very, very satisfying.”
“Thor” star Chris Hemsworth continued to work alongside Robert Downey Jr. reprising his role as Tony Stark and Iron Man in the big-budget “The Avengers” with Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Chris Evans (Captain America) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) among others.
