It's official: Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play Edward Snowden in Oliver Stone's upcoming film. The news confirms an earlier Variety report stating that the actor had already agreed to star in the film, even before negotiations had formally begun. The film, based on two books documenting the whistleblower's now-infamous release of NSA documents, will begin production in Munich this January. The confirmation comes in the wake of CitizenFourthe recent documentary on Snowden directed by Laura Poitras.
