Armstrong documentary filming at Tour
Sony Pictures has long been working on a film adaptation of Lance Armstrong's book It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life. That's the movie that rumors linked to Matt Damon in the Armstrong role.
Armstrong's return to racing this year has the company working on a documentary focused on the comeback.
The documentary's director is Alex Gibney, who directed Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room and Taxi To the Dark Side. Gibney told the L.A. Times, “I wanted to understand Lance and what makes him tick. And the more I know, the more compelling the story gets.”
Producing the new documentary is Frank Marshall (who produced the Bourne, Indiana Jones, and Back to the Future series).
