“We’re deep into the edit,” Gibney said. “Sometimes editing can take a while, but I’m hoping the movie will be finished in the next few months.” That doesn’t mean we’ll see it then, of course -- at that point, the film, which is being financed and produced by Sony Pictures, would be delivered to the studio, which will determine how to roll it out. (Matt Damon was previously set to do the voice-over, though nothing’s been recorded because the film isn’t finished.)

The as-yet untitled movie -- it was originally called “The Road Back” but Gibney said it won’t necessarily be released under that name -- follows the athlete on his comeback bid in 2009 at the Tour de France. It was there that a then-37-year-old Armstrong came out of retirement to finish third at cycling’s most preeminent race.

Gibney said he went back to work this past summer to add in the new developments after Armstrong decided to not proceed in an arbitration process with the USADA over doping charges. “We came to a place where we were pretty much done. We knew about the federal investigation and the Tyler Hamilton ‘60 Minutes’ interview and everything else,” Gibney said, alluding to the former Armstrong teammate who charged him with doping in May 2011. “But recently I dug back in, in the wake of Lance’s decision not to challenge the USADA findings.”
