Edward Snowden is now a household name for releasing swathes of documents on the spying of various government organisations.
To little surprise, it has gathered the attention of Hollywood, and none other than super-director Oliver Stone. To be honest, we’re actually a little shocked that it took this long.
Now Edward Snowden is the subject of a film, imaginatively entitled Snowden: An Oliver Stone Film, and we’re guessing it will focus on Snowden’s document leaks. It is also based on two books: The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding and Time of the Octopus by Anatoly Kucherena.
In case you were wondering, the role of Snowden will be played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Levitt, you may recall was the star of such films as Looper, Brick, Premium Rush and Inception. He also looks nothing like Edward Snowden.
In any case, the trailer is below:
