Infinity Media, which produced the Oscar-nominated Capote, has set up its next film, Mike the Bike, based on another real-life character, says The Hollywood Reporter.

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.
