Ben Foster in talks for Lance Armstrong biopic

Contraband actor Ben Foster is in talks to play Lance Armstrong in a new movie biopic about the infamous cyclist.

Deadline are reporting that 32-year-old Foster is in "early negotiations" to play 41-year-old Armstrong in the Stephen Frears directed film.

Oscar nominated Trainspotting writer John Hodge will pen the script, which will focus on how the cyclist struggled with cancer before the recent doping scandal broke.
