The Lance Armstrong Movie

They've been talking about an Armstrong movie since he recovered from cancer, but now that there appears to be some sort of closure, it looks like Abrams will add his lens flare to the project.

Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot partners JJ Abrams and Bryan Burk are going to make a movie about the epic rise and fall of doping bicyclist Lance Armstrong. They’ve just closed a deal for screen rights to Cycle Of Lies: The Fall Of Lance Armstrong, a proposal for a book that will be written by Juliet Macur for HarperCollins.

It'll be interesting to see how this turns out, and which actor will drop to six-percent body fat for the role.
