LOS ANGELES (AP) - Paramount Pictures and J.J. Abrams' production company, Bad Robot, are planning a biopic about disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong.
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.
During a two-part interview with Oprah Winfrey, Armstrong admits 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 this week.
