American film director Oliver Stone will make a movie based on former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, as he journeyed from American spy turned whistleblower.

"This is one of the greatest stories of our time," Stone said in a statement. "A real challenge. I'm glad to have the Guardian working with us."


Choosing Stone to direct the movie is a rather interesting choice, as the 67-year-old is known for being rather unique with the way he uses the truth. However, he's a vocal supporter of Julian WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, so it will be interesting to see how he directs the movie - and what type of political slant he uses while filming.


Snowden already had a comic book made about him, and it isn't a surprise to hear there was interest in creating a movie about the former NSA contractor. Sony Pictures has the rights to a separate Snowden-inspired film, though it's unsure when the movie will be released.
