Red Bull Media House announced the start of production on a new motorsports documentary called, “ON ANY SUNDAY, THE NEXT CHAPTER.” The new film, from Director Dana Brown, is set to start shooting this week at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, during the inaugural Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas.
“ON ANY SUNDAY, THE NEXT CHAPTER” is a follow-up to the legendary Bruce Brown- and Steve McQueen-produced documentary “ON ANY SUNDAY”. Apart from historical footage, “ON ANY SUNDAY, THE NEXT CHAPTER” will be entirely shot and mastered in 4K. The documentary will take a global look at the sport as production plans to shoot in Austria, the Czech Republic, Vietnam, Argentina, South Africa, Canada, and Spain, among many other locations, over the coming months.
Dana Brown (“STEP INTO LIQUID”, “DUST TO GLORY”) is the son of Director Bruce Brown (“THE ENDLESS SUMMER”), who directed the original Academy Award-nominated documentary “ON ANY SUNDAY” and who serves as Executive Producer for this film.
“In I971, ‘ON ANY SUNDAY’ made me want to become a film maker. Not because my Dad had made the film, but because it was the coolest thing I had ever seen. I had never imagined making another ‘ON ANY SUNDAY,’” commented Dir. Dana Brown. “It all started with a ‘what if’ and some excitement at the possibilities. The chance to tell a completely unique story that still has all the hallmarks of the original. The heart, soul and passion have not changed. But the level of performance and the technology to convey that certainly has.”
“I want this film to get made because it’s great for the motorcycle sport,” commented Exec. Prod. Bruce Brown. “The time is right and I am so proud to have Dana tell the story and work with Red Bull Media House and Freeride Entertainment to pass the torch to the next generation of motorcycle enthusiasts and film-goers alike. A lot has happened in the past 40 years, but the passion for riding is timeless and continues today.”
SOME OF THE FEATURED TALENT INCLUDES:
Travis Pastrana (USA), Marc Marquez (Spain), Robbie Maddison (Australia), James “Bubba” Stewart (USA) and more. Other riders featured in “ON ANY SUNDAY, THE NEXT CHAPTER” are to be announced in the coming months.
“ON ANY SUNDAY” was released in 1971 and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in 1972.
