Shooting for a documentary feature film about the life and career in formula one of Ayrton Senna will begin next month, British makers Working Title Films have announced.

The movie, with the backing of both the late Brazilian's family and Formula One Management, will span the great triple world champion's years in the top category of open wheel racing between 1984 to his death at Imola ten years later.

London based Working Title Films said the feature will explore Senna's life and work, his physical and spiritual achievements on the track, his quest for perfection and the mythical status he attained since dying at the age of 34.

With the permission of the Senna family, it will be the first documentary about the former Lotus, McLaren and Williams driver, while Formula One Management will provide footage.

Among Working Title's hits include About a Boy, Elizabeth, Dead Man Walking, Billy Elliot and Four Weddings and a Funeral.
