Jay Roach Is Making a Lance Armstrong Film, Too

Lance Armstrong attends the 2011 Pan-Massachusetts Challenge on August 6, 2011 in Bourne, Massachusetts.

Lance Armstrong has finally joined the ranks of Truman Capote, Alfred Hitchock, Snow White, and that meteor that threatened earth in the late-nineties, as he will be the subject of two competing movies at roughly the same time. We already knew about the J.J. Abrams–produced one that's based on Juliet Macur's book Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong. Well, Deadline reports that Jay Roach is working on his own Armstrong movie, which will be written by Scott Z. Burns (Side Effects). No word yet on which will star Toby Jones.
