Radically Inspired Films’ newest venture, “On Fire,” is a biopic about John O’Leary, a St. Louis resident, motivational speaker, podcaster and author of “On Fire: The 7 Choices to Ignite a Radically Inspired Life.” Huntington serves as the film’s executive producer. O’Leary’s story centers on his recovery from severe burns he suffered as a 9-year-old when he ignited an explosive gasoline fire in his garage. He spent five months in the hospital and endured years of follow-up surgeries and physical therapy. As an adult, O’Leary began sharing his story as a motivational speaker. He published “On Fire” in 2016 and a second book, “In Awe: Rediscover Your Childlike Wonder to Unleash Inspiration, Meaning and Joy,” in 2020.
