With TWO Lance Armstrong movies reportedly in the works, it's probably no coincidence the disgraced cyclist returned to L.A. yesterday ... where he learned that he still has a few fans left.
Lance hit up Mastro's in Beverly Hills ... and on his way into the restaurant, he was stopped by a few children who requested a photo -- Lance obliged with a smile.
But on his way out, Armstrong was mum when asked his thoughts on the two studios reportedly racing to get a biopic made.
FYI -- there are reports J.J. Abrams is pushing to get a film made ASAP for Paramount ... while director Jay Roach is said be spearheading a project for Warner Bros.
It's verrry possible Lance is in town to decide which studio to work with ... then again, maybe he just misses the spotlight.
