Spielberg planning Hunt biopic
A DreamWorks spokesperson says, "I can confirm there are plans for a James Hunt film to be made."
A source tells the Sunday Express, "Negotiations are very advanced and a deal is very close for the film on James Hunt. This is a fantastic story about a very charismatic figure and has all the elements of a great film. Hunt was quite a character."
Womaniser Hunt became the Formula One champion in 1976 but was left devastated two years later (78) when his pal Ronnie Petersen died during the Italian Grand Prix. Hunt passed away in 1993 after suffering a heart attack.
