Infinity Media Revving Up with ‘Mike the Bike’

Infinity Media Revving Up with 'Mike the Bike'

Infinity Media, producers of the multiple Oscar-nominated “Capote,” is planning to produce another film on a real-life charismatic person — British motorcycle champion Mike Hailwood. Hailwood, voted “Greatest Motorcyclist of All Time” in a recent worldwide poll, won the world championship ten times in the ’60s and ’70s before being forced to retire after a terrible crash which left him partially crippled. Nicknamed “Mike the Bike” by his legions of fans, he still has a huge following around the globe. The project was brought to Infinity by writer/producer Paul Pender, who obtained the life rights from Hailwood’s widow Pauline earlier this year. Infinity’s Michael Ohoven will produce and Pender will co-produce. [Brian Brooks]
