Hi Bryan Here….

Chris Hemsworth other known as Captain Tiberius Kirk or Thor is in final talks to star in ‘Rush’.  He will take on the role of British Formula One driver James Hunt.  The film will be produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard with Howard most likely to direct.  The film will most likely follow the story of Hunt’s rivalry with Niki Lauda for Formula One circuit dominance in the 1970s.

This film does not have a distributor yet, but most likely will end up with Universal.  No other casting news yet on this film, but expect some big names.  Hemsworth is very popular right now.  I’m very happy to see him getting some great roles with great talent.  Shooting for this film is expected to start early in 2012, but who knows when this will actually get off the ground.  Hemsworth still has Thor 2 and The Avengers to shoot as well.

Your thoughts?
