Alex Gibney and Frank Marshall on 'The Armstrong Lie' Alex Gibney and Frank Marshall talk with Kim Masters about how they set out to make an uplifting film about Lance Armstrong's comeback ride in the 2009 Tour de France only to find that film too 'naive' to release. While in post production during 2010, Armstrong's former teammates went public with information about his doping. The filmmakers shelved the movie and waited. Then in October, 2012, the US Anti-Doping Association (USADA) released a detailed account of Armstrong's actions. The filmmakers then spent the better part of the last year recutting the first film called The Road Back and conducting new interviews -- including some with Lance Armstrong -- to make their new film, The Armstrong Lie .
