Telling the story of McLaren’s legendary founder, Bruce McLaren, is the forthcoming motion picture McLaren film. The movie, which uses a potent mix of interviews with Bruce’s colleagues, family, friends, and rivals painstakingly sourced archive footage and live-action reconstruction, promises to be both thrilling and moving.
“I think there are comparisons to be drawn between Bruce and stars like James Dean and Buddy Holly – incredibly talented young people who never lived to realize their true potential. Bruce was only 32 when he died, yet in that short period of time he achieved an enormous amount and built an incredible reputation for himself and the company. I think his life had everything that you look for in a great story and Bruce’s legacy will live on through this film,” says director Roger Donaldson.
The McLaren film will be released on Blu-ray, DVD and digital platforms on May 29th.
