Even if Oliver Stone is a shit historian (and he really, really is) he has a fun way of turning our garbage world on its head. Simply titled Snowden: An Oliver Stone Film, it should be clear from the outset that this is going to be A) probably very well-crafted, and B) probably a ham-fisted lecture. Again, we can’t fucking wait.
The movie is based on two books: The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding and Time of the Octopus by Anatoly Kucherena. And it stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Ed Snowden. Nic Cage will also make an appearance, playing a senior intelligence official. Again, we can’t wait.
