Chris Hemsworth is set to appear on the big screen next year as the racing driver James Hunt in the movie Rush. Producer Eric Fellner has been speaking about the film and has said that Chris Hemsworth gives a great performance in it.
Collider quote Fellner as saying, “Hemsworth’s great, but we know Hemsworth’s great. Daniel Bruhl is a surprise and we love a surprise, he’s brilliant. [Hemsworth] does a lot of shagging in the movie. He does a lot of naked shagging.”
He added, “The amazing thing was, here’s a film about Formula 1 which firstly isn’t of a lot of interest in the U.S. anyway, yet, and it’s a man’s sport and it’s a period film—the women scored through the roof in the preview. Now it’s only a preview, but they absolutely adored it. I mean the men loved it too, but the women’s scores were huge.”
As well as starring Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl, Rush also stars Olivia Wilde, Natalie Dormer, and Alexandra Maria Lara. Rush is directed by Ron Howard and is set to be released in the UK on September 13, 2013 and then in the US on September 20, 2013.
