Cycle News Staff | April 20, 2013

Filming for “On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter” got rolling at the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin, Texas, yesterday with director Dana Brown, the son of Bruce Brown who directed the original “On Any Sunday,” focusing his efforts at the MotoGP on rookie phenom Marc Marquez.

With backing from the Red Bull Media House, “On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter” – “will journey deeper into the humanity, thrills and excitement behind the global culture of motorcycle riding; those that are bonded by their passion for the race, the exhilaration of the ride, the love of family and friendship and on a deeper level – their quest for the thrill of the next ride. Apart from the historical footage, “On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter” will be entirely shot and mastered in 4K.”

Brown is excited to make another “On Any Sunday.”

“In I971, “On Any Sunday” made me want to become a film maker,” Brown said. “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.” 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 motorcycle sport,” said Executive Producer 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.”

In addition to Marquez, the film will also focus on Travis Pastrana, Robbie Maddison and James Stewart. The documentary will also 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 others in the coming months.
