Wow, had no idea director Ron Howard was working on a biopic about Formula 1 champion driver Niki Lauda and the 1976 crash at the German Grand Prix in Nürburgring,that almost claimed his life.
Shortly after the accident, Lauda got back behind the wheel to challenge his rival, James Hunt, who is played by Chris Hemsworth. The movie is set in the 1970s and follows the on-and-off track lives of Hunt and Lauda and their respective racing teams of McLaren and Ferrari.
Gotta say, this has me intrigued. [via firstshowing]
