Fallen cycling idol Lance Armstrong has already had the Oprah treatment - now he is heading for the silver screen.
Paramount Pictures and JJ Abrams' production company, Bad Robot, are planning a biopic about the disgraced sportsman, a studio spokeswoman said.
They have secured the rights to New York Times reporter Juliet Macur's forthcoming book Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong, due out in June. Ms Macur covered the seven-time Tour de France winner for over a decade.
No director, writer, star or start date has been set.
In a two-part interview with TV mogul Oprah Winfrey, Armstrong admitted using performance-enhancing drugs to reach his historic victories, after defiantly denying it for years.
