Seven-time Tour de France-winning Cyclist Lance Armstrong certainly is no stranger to controversy and not one, but two Films are on their way about his fall from grace after his doping offences were brought to light.
Just beginning production this past weekend, Stephen Frears (The Queen, Philomena) is directing a Biopic simply known as The Cycling Project, based on the Book Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong by David Walsh. Cast in the role of Sportswriter Walsh is Australian Actor Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids, The Sapphires), who persistently hounds Armstrong for years. Playing Armstrong is Ben Foster (seen above) who has been selective in his roles to date, but soon will be seen in Kill Your Darlings, opposite Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan. He currently is attached to Robin Wright and both were spotted in Toronto at TIFF ’13 just last month. StudioCanal is producing the Film. TIFF ’14, perhaps?
Also premiering at TIFF ’13 was Documentary The Armstrong Lie by Filmmaker Alex Gibney who followed Armstrong for four yearsfollowing his Comeback post-Cancer to his admission of doping in 2012, following a federal investigation. The Film includes interviews with Armstrong‘s Teammates and Doctors. “It’s not a Story about doping, it’s a story about Power and hanging onto that Power”, says Gibney. Mongrel Media releases on Friday, November 29, 2013.
