Lance Armstrong Life Story Peddled to Star Trek's Abrams
By Julian Kossoff | January 20, 2013 9:24 PM EST
Lance Armstrong is to have his rise and fall immortalised on film after a top producer bought the movie rights to a forthcoming biography of the disgraced cyclist.
Star Trek director JJ Abrams with his production company Bad Robot and Paramount Pictures are reported to have negotiated a deal for the screen rights to Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong that will be written by Juliet Macur for publishers Harper Collins.
Macur has covered Armstrong for a decade as a journalist for the New York Times, reporting on his recovery from life-threatening cancer, his seven consecutive Tour de France titles and his repeated denial of doping allegations.
