Things are moving fast on all of the Lance Armstrong movies that are jumping to get made, but there's a newcomer that's moving so fast that we're pretty sure the director and Working Title are are doping! LOLz!
They're trying to shoot as soon as THIS FALL for the movie, which is in the early stages still! Director Stephen Frears (who made a pretty great Muhammad Ali movie) seems to be taking his surprise entry in a landscape of Lance movies very seriously!
He's going up against TWO other dramatic projects based on Lance being a dirty cheater and liar, and they have quite the head start. One is being helmed by Jay Roach, and the other is being brought to the screen by JJ Abrams and Bryan Burk, who are working on a movie based on the HarperCollins book Cycle Of Lies: The Fall Of Lance Armstrong.
It'll be interesting to see if they all have enough steam to actually be made!
Our money is on JJ, though, because he's reportedly courting Bradley Cooper. It's all about star power when it comes to something like this!
