Bad Robot To Tell The Truth About Lance Armstrong

Adina Miller writes for Bleeding Cool.

I suppose it’s possible, although not likely, that you have yet to hear about Lance Armstrong‘s career-shattering confession of using performance-enhancement drugs. As if countless interviews and television appearances weren’t already enough exposure for him, the infamous story of the cyclist’s rise and fall is heading to the silver screen through Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot partners JJ Abrams and Bryan Burk.

The team will be using The New York Times‘ sports reporter Juliet Macur‘s book proposal entitled Cycle Of Lies: The Fall Of Lance Armstrong. Just a proposal? I’m a bit skeptical on this one here. I’d argue that it’s more important to see how the book does on its own terms before trying to turn it into a movie.

But apparently Macur has done her homework on Armstrong. According to Deadline, she has followed him throughout his career, from his cancer recovery to even vouching against his narcotics usage accusations.

So, Armstrong recently disclosed his use of performance-enhancing drugs to Oprah Winfrey. Up until this interview, Armstrong had fervently denied ever using said drugs, as well as attacking those who accused him. Maybe it was the drugs that shorted out his temper?

This is not the the first time Armstrong’s story has been up for a possible movie deal. The first was with Sony, which had Armstrong on board for the production, but it is unlikely they will revive this project now that the angle has been so drastically changed.

Will you be interested in seeing the truth behind one of sports’ most disreputable athletes turned into movie? I for one feel I’ve heard quite enough about Armstrong, but hey, who knows?
