Ben Foster is in early negotiations to portray Lance Armstrong in a biopic that will be directed by Stephen Frears.

The movie is being produced by Working Title partners partners Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner and written by John Hodge (“Trainspotting”).

Foster will be seen next in IFC’s “Ain’t Them Body Saints,” Sony Classics’ “Kill Your Darlings” and Uni’s “Lone Survivor” opposite Mark  Wahlberg.

Variety’s sister site first reported Foster’s potential attachment to the Armstrong project.

Foster is repped by WME.
