Lance Armstrong Movie

Recommended Posts

Deadline:

Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot partners JJ Abrams and Bryan Burk are going to make a movie about the epic rise and fall of doping bicyclist Lance Armstrong. They’ve just closed a deal for screen rights to Cycle Of Lies: The Fall Of Lance Armstrong, a proposal for a book that will be written by Juliet Macur for HarperCollins.

So, they're already planning to make a movie based on a book that hasn't been written yet about a story that was confirmed (by Armstrong, at least) just a few days ago.

Worth listening to: NPR's Planet Money story, "Lance Armstrong And The Business Of Doping."

It should be called THE BICYCLE THIEF

[rimshot]

Judged by number of RTs and "Favorites," it's the best joke I've ever told on Twitter

it is always the simple joke that came to easily that Twitter loves...the one that took you time to really craft? Noone seems to even see. :)

I weep a tear of rueful agreement.

Hopefully this chap will have learned his lesson before this film hits DVD:

A POOLE entrepreneur is looking for creative suggestions after becoming stuck with 10,000 DVDs featuring disgraced former US cyclist Lance Armstrong.

Karl Baxter of Wholesale Clearance UK at Willis Way bought the discs before the seven times Tour de France winner’s name was fatally tarnished in a doping scandal.
