Filmmaker Oliver Stone has never shied away from controversial bio-pics, depicting figures as diverse as JFK, Alexander The Great, Nixon, Larry Flint and George W. Bush - and always courting controversy. His latest picture which looks at whistleblower/ leaker (depending on your perspective) Edward Snowden, will be no different.
According to industry bible Variety, Stone has found his Snowden - none other that Joseph Gordon Levitt, who rose to prominence in the 90's sitcom 'Third Rock from the Sun' before finding success in roles such as 'The Dark Knight Rises', 'Inception', 'Looper', '500 Days of Summer' and more recently in 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For".
Stone's "The Snowden Files" is expected to be released sometime later in 2015.
