The Bleed For This and Prime director is currently casting for the film, which he hopes to start shooting next summer (Jun17).

The real-life motorbike racer tells WENN, "This is a movie that I've been trying to get made for 15 years, and it has come around.

"I'm making my full-blown motorcyle road racing movie, the first of its kind. I race, but not on the Isle of Man. I do short track racing in the United States."

The daredevil moviemaker also loves taking to skies after becoming a qualified pilot.

"I have 300 hours now," he boasts.
