Jay Roach PhotoDeadline is reporting that Jay Roach has signed on to direct Warner Bros. Pictures upcoming film about the drug scandal surrounding repeat Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong. A few weeks ago, Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot Productions announced that they are working on their own adaptation of the scandal and were using Juliet Macur’s non-fiction book “Cycle of Lies” as the basis for their film. Neither film has a release date as yet.
