Working Title Join Lance Armstong Movie Race

If whilst watching sporting hero and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong’s spectacular public fall from grace as a disgraced drugs cheat you remarked…  “I bet they’ll make a movie out of that.’ then pat yourself on the back today for the third time!

Working Title has officially landed Ben Foster to play Armstrong in their take on the dramatic doping scandal, with a promising screenplay courtesy of Trainspotting screenwriter John Hodge. The film joins two other Armstrong biopics already in production by Paramount and Warner Bros.

Working Title is eager to start production as soon as possible in an effort to be the first Armstrong dramatization to arrive in theatres. However that race is probably set to intensify, as all three studios jostle for position to cash in on the potentially lucrative audience appetites for scandal, glory and undignified shame.
