Lance Armstrong’s Lies To Hit The Big Screen

The Lance Armstrong doping scandal has "Lifetime Original Movie" written all over it. But Lost producer J.J. Abrams doesn’t think so: he has secured the movie rights to a book about Armstrong’s fall from grace.

New York Times sports journalist Julie Macur’s book Cycle Of Lies: The Fall Of Lance Armstrong won’t be published until June 2013. But Paramount Pictures and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot have already secured the film rights to the book. No one else has been attached to the biopic yet, Huffington Post reports

Armstrong has been stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and a bronze medal he won in 2000 Olympics. This week, Oprah Winfrey aired the first part of a two-part  interview in which Armstrong admitted to using performancing enhancing drugs and also to "blood doping," or blood transfusions.

Speculation is now circulating that he lied to Oprah, downplaying how frequently he had used the drugs. NO ONE LIES TO OPRAH AND GETS AWAY WITH IT, LANCE.
