The story of road cycling villain Lance Armstrong is already well documented. Very well documented actually, in a couple of documentaries from Alex Holmes and Alex Gibney and plenty of books as well. He’s now set for a big screen biopic too though – and the trailer for the film looks absolutely unreal.
The film is based on ‘Seven Deadly Sins’, the acclaimed book from David Walsh, the Irish journalist who revealed the lies of the seven-time Tour de France champion. The film will star 3:10 to Yuma actor Ben Foster as Lance and that Irish bloke from the IT Crowd (also known as Chris O’Dowd) as Walsh.
It’s set for release late in 2015, and there’s no two ways about it, it looks like it’s going to be an epic.
