He's already gotten the Oprah treatment. Now Lance Armstrong is headed for the silver screen.
Paramount Pictures and J.J. Abrams' production company, Bad Robot, are planning a biopic about the disgraced cyclist, a studio spokeswoman announced.
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 more than a decade.
No director, writer, star or start date have been set.
Armstrong admitted on air to Oprah Winfrey last week to using performance-enhancing drugs to reach his historic victories, something he'd defiantly denied for years. The International Olympic Committee had stripped him of his 2000 bronze medal.
