Bradley Cooper Switches Armstrong Biopics – Now Riding Red Blooded American

Posted by at 11:15 am on August 16, 2013

Bradley CooperWhile he was previously rumored to play cyclist Lance Armstrong in a wholly separate studio biopic, now Deadline is reporting that Bradley Cooper is now negotiating to both produce and headline Jay Roach’s take, titled Red Blooded America.

Although it’s likely that Cooper will take the Armstrong role based on his past interest in the part, the outlet notes that he could potentially play Tyler Hamilton, a former teammate of Armstrong, who later spoke out against him, instead.

Red Blooded American features a screenplay by Scott Z. Burns (Side Effects, Contagion) and is set up at Warner Bros. and Atlas Entertainment. Competing narrative projects include an untitled one from director Stephen Frears and Cycle of Lies, a take from Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot that Cooper was said to have previously considered. A documentary, The Armstrong Lie, was, meanwhile, recently announced for distribution by Sony Pictures Classics.
