McLaren film is launched

As we exclusive revealed recently there is to be a full-length feature film made about the life of New Zealand racing driver Bruce McLaren. The film is to be produced by Barrie Osborne, who has had a distinguished career including an Academy Award for The Return of the King, one of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. He also made The World's Fastest Indian andThe Matrix and was involved in many other movies including Godfather II, Cotton Club and Apocalypse Now.

The movie script will be written by Matthew Grainger. The film does not yet have a title nor a cast but all this should become clear in the months ahead. Filming should start in about a year and the aim is to release the film internationally, probably in late 2008 or early in 2009.
