The film uses archive footage and interviews with McQueen and key figures who worked on 'Le Mans', as well as present-day interviews with his family members, racing drivers involved in the film and the production team, to tell the in-depth story behind the movie and its star.

"In 1970 Steve McQueen arrived in France, having set himself a supreme challenge: to make the ultimate racing movie," said directors Gabriel Clarke and John McKenna.

"Our quest has been to meticulously piece together the incredible story of McQueen's six life-changing months on and off set.

"Evoking a special era and bringing a special story to life for the first time, we believe our film will redefine the myth and the magic of Steve McQueen the movie icon and shed new light on Steve McQueen the visionary film-maker."

Steve McQueen: The Mans & Le Mans will be released on Monday June 5.
