The ‘Thor’ star, Chris Hemsworth is reportedly in talks to star in the upcoming racing drama ‘Rush’ based on the real rival story of Formula 1 racers, James Hunt and Niki Lauda in 70s. Chris Hemsworth will play the character of James Hunt in the movie.

The story of the movie is about Niki Lauda, the Austrian racer, who won F1 championship for three times. He survives a close-fatal crash in the year 1976, which left him with severe burns. But his competitiveness was not burned in him.

After returning from coma, Lauda continued his rivalry with James Hunt. However, Hunt won the race, as Lauda continued challenging Hunt in other Grands Prix of the year. James Hunt passed away in 1993, he ran 93 races in between the years 1973 and 1979, who won is lone championship in 1976. He worked as a commentator for BBC, after his retirement.

Chris Hemsworth will next be seen in ‘The Snow White and the Huntsman’ opposite Kristen Stewart of ‘Twilight’ and he also signed ‘Shadow Runner’ and the sequel of ‘Thor’. He is busy currently filming his upcoming movie ‘The Avengers’.

Peter Morgan will provide the script for the movie. ‘Rush’ would be the next project for the director Ron Howard, as the adaptation ‘The Dark Tower’ has moved back. The filming of ‘Rush’ is expected to start in March next year and is expected to reach the theaters in the year 2013.
