LOS ANGELES – Throughout his career, Ron Howard has found a knack for telling stories-both fiction and non-fiction-from a unique persepective.
He showed the dangers of firefighting in “Backdraft.” He showed the struggle and survival of astronauts in “Apollo 13.” He showed punishment a prizefighter takes in “Cinderella Man.”
Now the veteran director is tackling the sport of racing in the movie “Rush” which features the story of the 1976 Formula One season-specifically the rivalry between drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda.
Chris Hagan traveled to Los Angeles to visit with Howard to talk about the film, whic features numerous special effects to make the racing on the track come alive on the screen. Click on the video above to watch the interview.
