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.”
