Dustin Hoffman is added to the cast ensemble of Stephen Frears' untitled Lance Armstrong movie. The movie is currently shooting on location in Europe, and the "Little Fockers" actor will join when the production moves Stateside for the final stages.

Meanwhile, "Bates Motel" actress Olivia Cooke is tapped as the leading lady in "Ouija", Universal's horror movie based on the Hasbro board game. She will be joined by Douglas Smith who is cast as the male lead, with Stiles White serving as a director.

Ben Foster will portray Armstrong in the biopic, and Chris O'Dowd will play the journalist who helped uncover the cyclist's doping scandal after his multiple Tour de France wins. Other cast members are Lee Pace, Guillaume Canet and Jesse Plemons.

While the Lance Armstrong pic depicts a true story, "Ouija" will center on a group of friends who unwittingly awaken a dark and sinister presence after attempting to make contact with a recently deceased classmate through a Ouija board. Production will begin later this month.

Cooke will portray a girl who discovers that her dead friend had been messing around with a Ouija board and brings the game home. Smith is the dead girl's boyfriend, who may know more about her death than he lets on. Daren Kagasoff plays one of the supporting roles.
