Director of Bourne films pondering F1 movie

The driving scenes in the Bourne film series are top notch, arguably on the list of all-time great motoring action on the silver screen. Director Paul Greengrass is the man behind the second and third Bourne films, and he's looking for new projects. One of them would have Greengrass directing more vehicular action, and the subject is Formula One racing.

Greengrass is reportedly interested in a screenplay titled Rush. It's the story of Niki Lauda's 1976 racing season, which was nearly fatal. That season was also saw the intense rivalry between Lauda and British driver James Hunt reach a fever pitch.

There's no word on production time tables or interested acting talent. However, we expect that if Greengrass gets involved, the driving footage will be excellent.
