Lee Pace has been confirmed to join Stephen Frears’ still-untitled Lance Armstrong biopic, The Wrap reports. The currently shooting film stars Ben Foster in the main role, while Chris O’Dowd portrays the journalist David Walsh, who wrote Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong, the book this film is going to be based on. We also know that Jesse Plemons and Guillaume Canet have supporting roles, while Lee’s role remains under the wraps.
The official synopsis can be read bellow.

The film charts the thrilling rise of pro-cyclist Lance Armstrong through the 90s and early 2000s, battling cancer, as he and his fellow American teammates dominate and change the quintessentially European sport of cycling. Winning the Tour de France an unprecedented seven times, Lance retires as one of the great sporting heroes of our time, and worth millions of dollars. David Walsh, sports writer, is at first charmed by Lance’s charisma and talent. Seven Tours later, and ostracised by the cycling community for speaking out, he believes the world is being sold a lie. A lone voice, it is several years before Lance is exposed.

The shooting will take place in France and the UK.
