#GIVEAWAY: ENTER TO WIN “THE ARMSTRONG LIE” ON BLU-RAY
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Mr. Will Wong are thrilled to give Readers a chance to win the one Documentary which had everyone whispering at TIFF ’13, The Armstrong Lie. If you think you know all about Lance Armstrong, think again.
In 2009, Academy Award® winning Director Alex Gibney was hired to make a Film about Lance Armstrong‘s comeback to cycling. The Project was shelved when the doping scandal erupted, and re-opened after Armstrong‘s confession. THE ARMSTRONG LIE picks up in 2013 after Armstrong was stripped of his 7 Tour de France Titles, and presents a riveting, insider’s view of the unraveling of the greatest deception in sports history.
The Film is produced by Alex Gibney, Academy Award® Nominee, Frank Marshall (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Seabiscuit, The Sixth Sense, The Color Purple, Raiders of the Lost Ark) and Matt Tolmach (The Amazing Spider-Man). Beth Howard and Brett Banks served as co-producers.

#FIRSTLOOK: BEN FOSTER AS LANCE ARMSTRONG | “THE ARMSTRONG LIE” TRAILER
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 years following 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.
