READ MORE: Momentum Pictures Acquires Lance Armstrong Biopic ‘The Program’
After premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival last week and scoring a domestic distribution deal with Momentum Pictures, Stephen Frears’ “The Program” is wasting no time in giving audiences a look at the controversial story at its center.
The latest drama from the director of “The Queen” and “Philomena” uncovers the true story behind disgraced cycling superstar Lance Armstrong, played by Ben Foster in what looks to be an eerily committed performance. Chris O’Dowd stars as the reporter trying to expose Armstrong as the cheat he really is, while Dustin Hoffman, Jesse Plemons and Lee Pace round out the cast.
Watch the gripping new trailer above. “The Program” will be released in theaters sometime in winter of 2016.
