They don’t make enough movies like this. The World’s Fastest Indian starring Anthony Hopkins, to be released first in New Zealand, then Australia. Don’t know when it will get over here but I’ll be waiting.
From the site:
Anthony Hopkins stars as Burt Munro, a man who never let the dreams of youth fade. After a lifetime of perfecting his classic Indian motorcycle, Burt set off from the bottom of the world to test his bike at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. With all the odds against him, he set a new speed record and captured the spirit of his times. Burt Munro’s 1967 world record remains unbroken and his legend lives on today.
This looks like it could be very well done, the director has a string of big budget, big star movies to his credit so we may have a top notch bike flick here.
There’s also a website about Bert Munro, the fellow this movie is about.
