First Look At Joseph Gordon-Levitt In Oliver Stone’s SNOWDEN – He Should’ve Gone To Specsavers


It’s debateable if we need a film about Edward Snowden following the Academy Award winning documentary Citizenfour – but we’re getting one courtesy of Oliver Stone, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt starring as the infamous whistleblower.

Snowden told of the surveillance of private communications by the National Security Agency in the US – he’s a hero to some and a traitor to many and that should make perfect fodder for Oliver Stone. Stone has been off-the-boil in recent years but this material should really engage the director who delights in raging against the machine

The supporting cast is top-notch with Shailene Woodley, Scott Eastwood, Melissa Leo, Timothy Olyphant, Rhys Ifans, Joely Richardson and Nicolas Cage joining Gordon-Levitt in Snowden which opens in December 2015.
