Lost creator JJ Abrams is reportedly close to completing a deal that would see the life of Lance Armstrong made into a movie.

Armstrong recently admitted in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that he took performance-enhancing drugs to win all seven of his Tour de France titles between 1999 and 2005.

Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot partners Abrams and Bryan Burk are now expected to bring the rise and fall of the American cyclist to the silver screen, according to Deadline.com.

The pair are understood to have completed a deal to secure the film rights for Cycle Of Lies: The Fall Of Lance Armstrong - a book that is due to be written by Juliet Macur for HarperCollins.
