    While the disappointing box office of Ron Howard's underrated "Rush" caused a shakeup at production house Exclusive Media, that doesn't mean no one is banking on the director. And Universal has stepped up, putting down $1 million on a spec script by Gary Spinelli (whose only credit is the Dolph Lund...
