First Look At Ben Foster As Lance Armstrong In Biopic That Still Needs A Title, Suggestions?

The last movie we saw about cycling was “Premium Rush,” so the limited genre that it already is, there’s really has nowhere to go but up. We certainly won’t argue with a movie led by the excellent Ben Foster, particularly if he’s playing disgraced former American hero Lance Armstrong.

The actor is leading the Stephen Frears directed biopic that started filming a few days ago, and lo and behold, we now have the first look at Foster shifting gears. Chris O’Dowd, Guillaume Canet and Jesse Plemons co-star in the John Hodge (“Trance,” “The Beach,” “Trainspotting“) penned adaptation of David Walsh‘s book “Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit Of Lance Armstrong,” that will tell the story of journalist’s journey to expose the cyclist, while also tracking Armstrong’s rise and fall.

But what this movie really needs right now is a title, so leave your suggestions below. We like “Livestrong Into The Darkness.”

Lance Deserves An Award

I wish every athlete who doped and beat every other athlete in their field who were also doping could raise over $500 million dollars for cancer research. Most of them do it so they can get a bigger contract, endorsements and sleep with a multitude of prostitutes.

"Why Should We Give a Damn About Lance's Doping When We All Know Everybody He Beat Was Doing It? [subtitled:] I Mean, He Still Came Back From Testicular/Abdominal/Lung/Brain Cancer"

Maybe that's a little wordy. Needs work.

I like "F— you, Lance Armstrong!" As a title. Man I really hate, hate, hate that guy. Because I used to have so much respect for him wand what he went through. Now he needs to just go away.

Disgraced Cyclist or just Cyclist – cuz double entendre

Kevin, did you really dislike "Premium Rush" that much? I thought it was quite well done. Not great, but managed to work surprisingly well for what it was.

Turning Wheel (since in French, it's the used expression for rise and fall)

I'd love to see "Liar Liar, Pants on Fire," but I expect that's too simplistic.

How about "Ball Deep in Deception" ?
