Lee Pace joins Ben Foster in Stephen Frears’ Untitled Lance Armstrong biopic

Since there is quite a bit of love for Lee Pace here I thought you might want to hear what film he recently signed on to.

It’s not a fantasy or superhero film but instead a biopic on Lance Armstrong. The yet untitled flick from director Stephen Frears stars Foster in the leading role of the disgraced cyclist, and will follow his “rise to fame and fall from grace, including his Tour de France championships and battle with cancer. Walsh was among the integral figures who helped expose doping within professional cycling.”

Pace has boarded though his role is under wraps.

The material is based on Walsh’s book “Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong.” Chris O’Dowd is set to play Walsh. Jesse Plemons (BREAKING BAD) and Guillaume Canet (BLOOD TIES) will co-star.
