He's already gotten the Oprah treatment. Now Lance Armstrong is headed for the silver screen.
Paramount Pictures and JJ Abrams' production company, Bad Robot, are planning a biopic about the disgraced cyclist, a studio spokeswoman said on Friday.
They've secured the rights to New York Times reporter Juliet Macur's upcoming book Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong, due out in June. Macur covered the seven-time Tour de France winner for over a decade.
No director, writer, star or start date have been set.
Armstrong has just completed a two-part interview with Oprah Winfrey in which he admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs to reach his historic victories, something he'd defiantly denied for years.
The International Olympic Committee stripped him of his 2000 bronze medal at the Sydney Olympics this week.
