The Program international trailer: Ben Foster stars as Lance Armstrong
Ever since the news of Lance Armstrong’s doping scandal first broke, the story has been begging for a film adaptation. (Or two.) The first photo from Stephen Frears’ Armstrong biopic The Program was released back in 2013, but little has been said about the movie since then. Now, the first international trailer for The Program is here, giving us a first look at Ben Foster’s portrayal of the disgraced cycling champion.
The Program is based on sports journalist David Walsh’s book Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong, and Chris O’Dowd plays Walsh, whose investigation helped expose Armstrong’s drug use. Lee Pace, Guillaume Canet, Dustin Hoffman, and Jesse Plemons also star.
A U.S. release date hasn’t been announced, but The Program will open other territorites later this year.
