It was nearly two years ago that the first image from Stephen Frears‘ Lance Armstrong movie “The Program” arrived. since that time a number of festivals have come and gone where we might’ve expected it to show up, and when any movie is off the grid this long, one does begin to wonder about its quality. Today the first international trailer has arrived, and though it’s dubbed in German, it gives you an idea of the picture.
Ben Foster takes the lead role as the disgraced cyclist in the story penned by John Hodge (“Trance,” “The Beach,” “Trainspotting“) and based on David Walsh‘s book “Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit Of Lance Armstrong, about the journalist’s work in exposing Armstrong’s misdeeds. Yes, that’s Chris O’Dowd taking a dramatic co-starring role, with Guillaume Canet and Jesse Plemons among the cast as well.
“The Program” opens in Germany on October 8th and I presume U.S. release details will be coming soon. Watch below.
