Cooper has kept interest in playing Armstrong, but it’s unsure whether he’ll take the lead role or instead play Tyler Hamilton, a former Armstrong teammate who would go on to speak against him. “Red Blooded American” features a screenplay by Scott Z. Burns ("Side Effects," "Contagion") who is set up at Warner Bros.


There are numerous Armstrong biopics in development at different studios including an untitled version from director Stephen Frears and “Cycle Of Lies,” a take from Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot. “The Armstrong Lie,” a documentary, will be distributed by Sony Pictures Classics. Cooper recently starred in “The Hangover Part III” and can next be seen in Susanne Bier’s “Serena” and David O. Russell’s “American Hustle."
