Joseph Gordon-levitt Wishes The Lead In The The Snowden Records Of Oliver Stone

Deadline is now reporting that actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the top contender to play the role of Edward Snowden in Stone's film, which hopes to start shooting in Munich this December. Stone and his producing partner Moritz Borman bought the screen rights for "The Snowden Files: The Inside Story Of The World's Most Wanted Man," from Guardian journalist Luke Harding, although the film is said to be based on the novel "Time of the Octopus" from Snowden's Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena, which mainly deals with Snowden's time in Russia hoping to get asylum while the United States was demanding his extradition to potentially face jail time for his crimes. Gordon-Levitt recently finished shooting Robert Zemeckis' The Walk , playing high-wire artist Philippe Petit, whose tightrope walk between the two towers of the World Trade Center in 1973 was the subject of the Oscar-winning documentary Man on Wire. Currently, he's reuniting with Seth Rogen and director Jonathan Levine (50/50) for an untitled X-Mas comedy that's filming in New York City. Both projects will be released by Sony Pictures in 2015. http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=123149
