Fallen cycling idol Lance Armstrong has already had the Oprah treatment - now he is heading for the silver screen.
They have secured the rights to New York Times reporter Juliet Macur's forthcoming book Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong, due out in June. Ms Macur covered the seven-time Tour de France winner for over a decade.
No director, writer, star or start date has been set.
The International Olympic Committee stripped him of his 2000 bronze medal this week.
In part two of the interview shown today, Armstrong said the most humbling moment in his doping scandal was being forced to step aside from the Livestrong charity he founded.
"And to make that decision to step aside, it was big," he said. "It was the best thing for the organisation, but it hurt like hell."
