Spoiler alert: Armstrong falls from grace, having mortgaged everything valuable in his life to become the best for a really, really long time. Bradley Cooper will be producing Red Blooded American (movie studios hate hyphens for marketing purposes), and is in talks to play either the man himself or Tyler Hamilton, a whistleblower on the US cycling team who gave a pretty damning account of what goes on to 60 Minutes.

There's a sense of urgency with this project, as it's competing against three or so other big Lance Armstrong films, and because this isn't a film about asteroids or volcanoes, there can probably be only one, so the early bird gets the box office worm.
