Barry Sheene Movie


If there's one man in motorcycle racing history that deserves a biographical movie, it's British legendary two-time 500cc World Champion, Barry Sheene.

The arch nemesis of King Kenny Roberts, Barry Sheene was the first motorcycle racer to truly understand the power of celebrity, and quite often had a camera following him during his most dramatic moments – like when his rear tire exploded on the Daytona banking in 1975 – with the resulting television coverage and endless self promotion making him a household name across the globe.
Now, IO Films Australia and Deep Spring Pictures UK will be producing a bio-movie on the man who sadly succumbed to cancer in 2003. No release date has been confirmed and any further information on the film that comes to hand, we will pass onto you.
