MC Life: Ben Younger
Ben Younger was immediately captivated by Isle of Man racing and firmly believes the larger public would also.
Ben Younger may be just the person needed to bring two-wheeled racing action to the mainstream public. He's directed such films as Boiler Room and Prime, and he's also a true motorcycle enthusiast.
Ben Younger was originally captivated by the Isle of Man competition after he was shown a DVD of Joey Dunlop winning three races.
Younger believes the visibility of motorcycles makes it much more exciting to watch than car racing where all the action is hidden.
Ben Younger's story will follow a 37-year-old man who can’t make it racing in AMA anymore because he’s too old, so he goes to the Isle of Man competition.
Ben Younger believes his film would be marketable to the general public and racing fans alike.
Younger is currently being held back by Hollywood studios hesistant to invest in a niche sport. His solution: attach an A-list star to the lead role so studios will give the green light.
