There are many, many Lance Armstrong biopics in the pipeline. Some will be in theaters, some will be on television, and some will never make it to production or release. One way to get a leg up is to get the biggest stars for your Lance Armstrong biopic.
So Stephen Frears got Dustin Hoffman in his film. Which is shooting in America and Europe. It’s not known what role Dustin Hoffman will play in the film, but I think we can all agree that he would make a really great Sheryl Crow, and that we should just believe that’s his role until we’re told otherwise.
The film will also star Chris O’Dowd as the reporter that cracked the case and Ben Foster as Armstrong himself.
