  Could San Andreas 2 With The Rock Happen After All? Here’s The Latest Dwayne Johnson is a busy actor, but could San Andreas 2 move forward after all?In fact, it kind of sounds as if ideas are at still being kicked around related to San Andreas 2, as producer Hiram Garcia did tell Screenrant they are “working hard” to crack a second story in that space. He also highlighted that the studio and production companies behind the original flick have interest as well.

The recently-released Netflix documentary detailing the life and career of stricken F1 star Michael Schumacher did not properly show the German racer's "commitment to being a tough guy", according to his former rival Damon Hill. Speaking to the Express, the Brit spoke of "the faceless front" Schumacher had during his racing days and just how different those two great racers were.

The rivalry shared between Hill and Schumacher in the 1990s is regarded as one of the best in the sport's history.

It was in the middle of that decade when the tension between the pair was at its highest, with one of F1's highest-profile controversies involving the pair and deciding the outcome of the 1994 season.

He was leading after 35 laps of the Adelaide circuit, but picked up some damage to his Benneton after going off the track and was being reeled in by the title-chasing Hill in his Williams.

The pair collided as Hill attempted to overtake, which resulted in neither driver being able to finish the race and score points, meaning Schumacher won the first of his seven world championships.

The title was his despite most people blaming him for the crash, and the Brit had to wait two more years to lift the world title.

"I was not very close to Michael - well, I got very close to him on the track - but Michael was quite difficult to know," Hill said.

"The documentary which came out showed why he possibly had this faceless front that he put on when he went racing.

"I saw a few glimpses of the nice guy on occasion, but I think we were worlds apart in terms of our mindsets."

"I described [the documentary] as a love letter from Corinna, to show the human person that we didn't see when he raced," Hill added.

"It didn't show quite how committed he was as a tough guy, but how do you totally cover a human being? You can write as many autobiographies as you like, and documentaries - they're all little snapshots of moments, and it's a never ending thing.

"What has happened is tragic and I really do feel for the Schumachers for what has happened to Michael - I wouldn't wish it on anybody.

"Life is full of unexpected, nasty surprises which can be very unkind."
