Oliver Stone to direct Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Edward Snowden film

The Edward Snowden whistleblower case may be the biggest story of the last ten years and director Oliver Stone is quick to capitalize on the news. Deadline reports on Stone’s project and his casting Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the former NSA contractor.

“Stone and his producing partner Moritz Borman intend to shoot beginning in December in Munich. It becomes the latest intriguing role for Gordon-Levitt, who wrapped playing Philippe Petit in the Robert Zemeckis-directed The Walk for Tom Rothman‘s TriStar and is now shooting Xmas with Seth Rogen at Sony,” Deadline reports in the Sept. 21 article.

Borman struck the deal with Snowden’s lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, for film rights to his novel Time Of The Octopus. The book is basis for the story of the whistleblower who fled to Russa, sought asylum. “Stone and Borman also bought the screen rights to The Snowden Files: The Inside Story Of The World’s Most Wanted Man, a book by Guardian journalist Luke Harding that’s published by Guardian Faber,” says Dealine.

 Outing the NSA spying network has been a polarizing and interesting story. Snowden is called a hero and traitor, a leaker and a whistleblower. Over the next few years, even more will be learned about his personally and of the story behind the man.
