Oliver Stone Confirms Joseph Gordon-Levitt Will Play Whistleblower Snowden in his Film

Premiere Of Magnolia Pictures' "White Bird In A Blizzard" - Red Carpet

Director Oliver Stone has confirmed that his next film will feature Joseph Gordon-Levitt as NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, who became a planetary celebrity back in 2013, for leaking NSA secrets.

Stone recently told Russian news site RIA Novosti that Snowden “will be played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt… a very good actor, popular with the young people.”

The film is still untitled, but Stone said it is based on two books, Luke Harding’s The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man, and Anatoly Kucherena’s Time of The Octopus.

Stone owns the rights to both books.

“We are working on the script. We hope to shoot early next year, we’ve been working on it for almost a year now… and we’re very pleased it’s coming along, ” Stone said.

Stone has met with Snowden, who enjoys temporary asylum in Russia.
