Bradley Cooper eyes up Lance Armstrong role

Jan 23 2013, 4:47am CST | by

Bradley Cooper wants to play Lance Armstrong in a movie.

The 'Silver Linings Playbook' actor has expressed his desire to portray the ''fascinating'' disgraced cyclist - who was stripped of his titles between 1999 and 2005 after it emerged he had taken performance-enhancing drugs - in J.J. Abrams' upcoming biopic about his rise and fall from grace.

Bradley told BBC news: ''I would be interested in [playing Armstrong]. I think he's fascinating. What a fascinating character. I remember Matt Damon was going to do his autobiography at one point years ago.

''I remember thinking, that would be a great character, I'd love to play that character. I would love to do something, I think he's pretty fascinating.''

'Star Trek' helmer J.J. and his Paramount Pictures partner Bryan Burk recently snapped up the screen rights for 'Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong', a new book by New York Times sportswriter Juliet Macur, who has covered the drugs cheat for over a decade.

Matt Damon and Matthew McConaughey are allegedly hot contenders to play the infamous cyclist in the Bad Robot project.

Sony Pictures were previously lining up Jake Gyllenhaal to play Armstrong, but dropped their film proposal when the seven-time Tour de France winner's reputation was damaged.

Rumor: Will Dave Bautista’s Drax the Destroyer Have ‘Significant Role’ in AVENGERS 3?

Sep 10 2014 11:57am CDT | Source: Collider

We know we’ve got a Guardians of the Galaxy sequel coming on July 28, 2017, but what’s to stop the characters from popping up in other Marvel movies as well?  Knowing the MCU and what the filmmakers have already teased, nothing at all.  In fact, a report just surfaced claiming that Dave Bautista is currently restructuring his contract so that he’ll benefit from Guardians’ financial success and also lock himself in for “a number of other Marvel movies,” including Avengers 3.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Concept Art Shows Off Stunning Xandarian Vistas

Sep 8 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: slash film

The Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t exactly like our real universe (for one thing, it has superheroes), but it’s close enough that the settings generally look familiar. The Avengers’ New York City is our New York City, give or take a Stark Tower. But this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy was the first Marvel movie to take place almost entirely off-Earth, and that meant Marvel had to create entirely new worlds from scratch. Naturally, the ...

New Image of Jennifer Lawrence in SERENA; Film Gets October 24th UK Release Date, But Remains in Limbo Stateside

Aug 27 2014 11:22am CDT | Source: Collider

Given the popularity of both Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper—especially after the one-two punch of Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle—it’s somewhat baffling that director Susanne Bier’s (In a Better World) drama Serena has sat on the shelf for this long.  The movie was shot back in 2012, and since it was completed Bier has found the time to shoot and finish another movie, with Serena still remai ...
