The boyish looking Joseph Gordon-Levitt is said to take on the role of Edward Snowden in an upcoming movie, according to the folks over at Reuters. As for the person who will direct this upcoming movie, you can expect the class and style of three-time Oscar winner Oliver Stone to ooze from it, as the movie enters production in Munich, Germany, early next January. Oliver Stone is also the one behind the screenplay which so happens to be based on a couple of books, namely The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding and Time of the Octopus by Anatoly Kucherena.
Oliver Stone himself does seem to be the perfect candidate to direct this particular movie, since he himself has been connected to politically-charged drama in the past after directing JFK, Born on the Fourth of July (which saw him pick up an Oscar in the process), as well as Nixon.
Gordon-Levitt’s slight stature as well as his spectacle wearing moments does invoke the memory of Snowden. Do you think that he is best suited to play the role of the ex-CIA computer professional? If you have answered in the negative, who would you propose to take over this role?
