Another period movie about a great motorsports rivalry? Hollywood, you are too kind.
With the much-anticipated release of Ron Howard’s “Rush” later this year, gearheads everywhere are getting excited about the first big-budget Hollywood movie that is properly about racing in a very long time. But it seems we’ll actually have two reasons to celebrate, as “Snake & Mongoose” will be hitting theaters September 6, just two weeks before Rush. The film depicts the friendly but intense rivalry between Don Prudhomme and Tom McEwen.
Theirs was one of the greatest rivalries in NHRA history, and one which they took full advantage of in order to make money. We’re looking forward to it. So should you.
