by | March 2, 2006 | Comments

Legendary British motorcycle champ Mike Hailwood might be gone, but he’s certainly not forgotten. Infinity Media, the production house that brought you "Capote," is planning a big-screen biopic of the British folk hero.

Says The Hollywood Reporter: "Infinity Media, which produced the Oscar-nominated "Capote," has set up its next film, "Mike the Bike," based on another real-life character. Penned by Paul Pender, the film chronicles the life of British motorcycle champion Mike Hailwood, who won the World Championship 10 times in the 1960s and ’70s before being forced to retire after a crash left him partially crippled. Nicknamed "Mike the Bike" by his fans, the late Hailwood’s story still enjoys worldwide recognition, particularly in the U.K. Infinity’s Michael Ohoven, who produced "Capote," said the film "fits perfectly into Infinity’s vision of developing and producing high-quality, commercially driven films with broad international appeal.""
