News has been very quiet on the Lee Pace front lately, but finally there’s something for fans to nibble on. The official, full-length trailer for The Program – the film about the Lance Armstrong doping scandal – has finally been released. Although Lee himself is barely featured in it, we get a great look at the movie, including the tone and themes throughout.
The first poster for The Program has been released, just one day after the first teaser trailer hit the web. (Remember: Lee Pace is playing Bill Stapleton, Lance Armstrong’s agent.) Amidst plenty of overly Photoshopped posters lately, I find this one pretty appealing, with the syringe adding some tongue-in-cheek flair to the design. There is no official theatrical release date for this film, sadly, although hopefully this recent uptick in promotion means The Program will be ready for public consumption soon.
The first trailer – a teaser – for Stephen Frear’s The Program (formerly known as Icon) has been released. Lee Pace will play Bill Stapleton in this biopic depicting bicylist Lance Armstrong and his controversy surrounding performance enhancement drugs. Ben Foster stars as Armstrong, with a strong supporting cast including Chris O’Dowd, Guillaume Canet, and Jesse Plemons. Check out a brief summary of The Program below:
Based on the award winning book Seven Deadly Sins by David Walsh, this tense and suspenseful thriller looks at how one of the greatest deceptions in the modern era was uncovered while Armstrong convinced the world he was a hero, winning the Tour de France seven times.
