Three film studios are reportedly keen on making a movie telling the life of disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong.

Three film studios in Hollywood are reportedly planning to tell Lance Armstrong's story on the big screen.

There have been reports suggesting that a film will be made centred around Armstrong, who was given a lifetime ban from cycling as well as stripped off of his record seven Tour de France titles after years of doping were exposed.

UK-based production company Working Title are thought to be considering the option, while Paramount Pictures and Warner Brothers are also keen to create a movie on the disgraced cyclist's life, according to the Daily Mail.

Working Title are said to have bought the rights to the book Seven Deadly Sins, which was written by Sunday Times sports journalist David Walsh.

Paramount Pictures have hold of New York Times reporter Juliet Macur's forthcoming piece Cycle of Lies, while Austin Powers director Jay Roach is said to be interested in working with Warner Brothers.
