Title Confusion: RUSH

Here we go again.

RON HOWARD has a new movie coming out this week. I heard it has a bunch of car crashes. Naturally I assumed it would be a sequel to the very first feature film he directed...
Grand Theft Auto (not the video game)
But then I find out the title of Ron Howard's new car-crash movie and I'm even more confused. I mean, is it a remake of the classic 1991 drug movie adapted by Peter Dexter (Mulholland Falls, Michael) and featuring the Golden Globe-nominated and Grammy-winning Eric Clapton song "Tears In Heaven"?
RUSH (not the rock band)
Seriously, if these two movies are unrelated, then I don't understand why MGM/UA doesn't insist Universal force Ron Howard to change the name of his new movie.
RUSH (not really by Lee Daniels)
There. That's better.

Ron Howard's Lee Daniels' Rush was written by Academy Award nominated screenwriter Peter Morgan (The Queen, The Last King of Scotland, Frost/Nixon, Hereafter).
