Hoffman will reportedly join the cast when production moves to the US. However, his role has yet to be confirmed.

The movie is based on journalist David Walsh's best-selling Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit Of Lance Armstrong, with Chris O'Dowd portraying Walsh.

Breaking Bad's Jesse Plemmons, Guillaume Canet and Lee Pace will also star in the film.

Trance writer John Hodge penned the screenplay, which follows the rise and fall of the cyclist who was banned from the sport following doping charges.
