Lance Armstrong just recently came clean about using performance enhancing substances, but it looks like a feature film about the now infamous seven time Tour de Force title "winner" is already in the works. Deadline reports that JJ Abrams' Bad Robot and Paramount Pictures have closed a deal to develop Cycle Of Lies: The Fall Of Lance Armstrong into a feature film. The book has yet to even be written, but will focus on the rise and fall of Armstrong from longtime Armstrong sports writer Juliet Macur. This isn't the first time Hollywood has tried to turn Armstrong's life into a feature film. Sony Pictures was working with Armstrong on a film that would focus on his ability to overcome obstacles such as cancer to become a champion, but dropped it following his doping scandal. That film was being made in cooperation with Armstrong and Jake Gyllenhaal attached to star. It's unclear if Sony will now try to resurrect the project and tweak it to include Armstrong's recent admission. So who out there is interested in seeing Armstrong's life story played out on the big screen? Do you think it could be a riveting tale of a hero's fall from grace or have you had your fill of Armstrong? Give us your thoughts below or over on Twitter @ClevverMovies. I'm Tara Turnure in Hollywood, thanks for watching!
