Lee Pace Joins Lance Armstrong Biopic

"The Hobbit" and "Pushing Daisies" star Lee Pace has joined the cast of Stephen Frears' untitled Lance Armstrong movie at Working Title and Studio Canal.

John Hodge ("Trance") penned the currently shooting film which stars Ben Foster as the controversial cyclist, based on journalist David Walsh's book "Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong."

The story follows Armstrong’s rise to fame and fall from grace, along with Walsh's efforts to expose the doping scandal within professional cycling.

Chris O’Dowd co-stars as Walsh. Jesse Plemons and Guillaume Canet also have key roles, while Pace's role remains under wraps.

Kate Solomon, Tracey Seaward, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are producing.
