The amazing story that was a lie. That of Lance Armstrong is about to be told in the new film from Optimum Releasing, The Program.
It tells the story of the one superhuman athlete who was brought to his knees and expunged form the sport that he “won” at. The story of how he used his fame to destroy the people who knew the truth behind his lies. How does it end, well I’ll let you watch the film to decide 🙂
Not only do we have the teaser trailer, above, but a set of images from the film. Showing both sides of the war on drugs in sport.
From Academy Award® nominated director Stephen Frears (The Queen, Philomena) and producers Working Title (The Theory Of Everything, Everest, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), comes the true story of the meteoric rise and fall of one of the most celebrated and controversial men in recent history, Lance Armstrong.
Based on the award winning book “Seven Deadly Sins” by David Walsh, and featuring a stellar cast including Ben Foster, Chris O’Dowd, Guillaume Canet (Tell No One) and Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad), this tense and suspenseful thriller looks at how one of the greatest deceptions in the modern era was uncovered while Armstrong convinced the world he was a hero, winning the Tour de France seven times.
