Dana Brown has recently begun filming a new sequel to the classic On Any Sunday, which was directed by his father, Bruce Brown, in 1971. Dana has directed several low-budget documentaries about surfing and desert racing over the last 10 years, including Endless Summer Revisited in 2000, Step Into Liquid in 2003 and Dust to Glory in 2005, which chronicled the 2003 Tecate Baja 1000 race.
Shooting for the new movie began earlier this month at the Red Bull Catalina Grand Prix, and will continue throughout 2011. The film has yet to be named, but you can bet that On Any Sunday will be part of, or referenced to, in the title. A 2012 release date is anticipated, with a format similar to his father’s original film, but with new names such as Jimmy Holley, Ricky Johnson and Travis Pastrana, as well as some footage of 70-and-still-riding Malcolm Smith (above), the real star of the 1971 film. Malcolm also appeared in Don Shoemaker and Ed Forsyth’s On Any Sunday Part II in 1981 and in Dana’s Dust to Glory. I am already reserving my copy.
