Oliver Stone Wants Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Edward Snowden

3rd Annual Reel Stories,   Real Lives Benefiting The Motion Picture & Television Fund

According to Deadline, director Oliver Stone is starting to shoot his film based on the Edward Snowden saga this December in Munich, and he wants Joseph Gordon-Levitt to play the lead.

Snowden, who leaked classified NSA information in 2013, has been living in exile in Russia. The Stone is based on the novel Time of the Octopus, which centers around Snowden’s attempts to gain asylum.

Gordon-Levitt has not yet been officially signed, and word is the young star is concerned about Stone’s recent success record, which hasn’t been stellar.

Stone’s film is reported to be more a drama than a political story, depicting the aftermath of Snowden’s leaks rather than the actual events that so shook the ground beneath the U.S. intelligence community.

Gordon-Levitt has just finished shooting The Walk for director Robert Zemeckis, and he is working on Xmas with Seth Rogen. This man can really stretch his roles.
