Feature documentary Wayne, which follows the life story of former world motorcycle champion Wayne Gardner, has begun production.
The doco is helmed by Last Cab to Darwin.s Jeremy Sims, who wrote the screen treatment alongside producer Matthew Metcalfe (Dead Lands) of the General Film Corporation.
.I love the feature doc format, and I am excited to be bringing the thrilling and complex story of Wayne Gardner.s incredible journey to cinema goers," said Sims.
"It is a tale of speed, danger, love, adversity, dogged willpower and, eventually, triumph, all set in the heady days of Australia.s .coming of age. in the late 80s. I was there, and I.m aiming to take our audience there too..
Metcalfe said he knew Sims was the man for the job after watching Last Cab to Darwin at Tiff in 2015.
"I knew that Jeremy was the best person to approach to tell this story.
