Keanu Reeves is world-renowned bike fanatic, nevertheless it appears he’s acquired some love for four-wheeled transportation as nicely. The actor has been noticed at a collection of F1 occasions this yr, and a new report from Variety exhibits why: Reeves is outwardly engaged on a restricted docuseries specializing in Brawn GP.
If you, like me, are’t a disciple of F1 branding historical past, the story of Brawn GP is definitely an fascinating one. Back within the monetary disaster of 2008, Honda pulled out of Formula One and left an unnamed however fully-prepared staff in its wake.
Honda’s staff principal, Ross Brawn, purchased the staff for one entire pound and renamed it in his personal picture: Brawn GP. The staff, with Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello driving, went on to dominate the 2009 F1 season earlier than being offered off once more in 2010 to Mercedes — turning into the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 staff we all know as we speak.
Despite solely current for one season, Brawn GP is an fascinating yarn — one Reeves now appears to be spinning for Disney+. Variety studies the collection could have 4 elements, and that each Button and Barrichello are on board to speak. Luca di Montezemolo, previously of Ferrari, is equally mentioned to be on board — in addition to Ross Brawn himself.
It’s unclear when the collection will see the sunshine of streaming day, nevertheless it probably gained’t come for a while. If Reeves is at the moment present process principal pictures, there’s nonetheless loads of post-production and edits left to come back. Still, getting Reeves’ charisma concerned with an oddball Formula One story ought to make for an entertaining, informative collection. Getting his followers concerned in F1 tales, too, definitely would play nicely with the collection’ present enthusiasm for non-automotive-specific streaming tv audiences.
