Is Joseph Gordon-Levitt about to star as Edward Snowden?
Rumours are abound in film circles that actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt will soon be gracing the silver screen as whistleblower Edward Snowden.
In a film based on journalist Luke Harding's The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man, as well as Time of the Octopus by Snowden's lawyer Anatoly Kucherena, it will have a script written and directed by Oliver Stone. The role would be for director Oliver Stone's Snowden biopic, for which he is currently seeking a lead. Variety magazine has said that in-demand Gordon-Levitt has already accepted Stone's offer, however no formal negotiations have begun. Should he officially take the role, filming will probably begin early next year.
