LONDON, June 4. /ITAR-TASS/. Oscar-winning American director Oliver Stone will make a film about former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, BBC reported.
The film about the whistleblower will be based on the book by Guardian journalist Luke Harding. The working title for the movie is The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man.
Filming will start before the end of the year. It is yet unclear whether Oliver Stone will film part of the film in Russia, where Edward Snowden currently resides in a political asylum.
Three-times Academy Award-winning director rose to prominence in the 1980s , tackling such controversial subjects at the Vietnam War in his movies. Stone regularly makes films on contemporary political issues. Among his most controversial films is 1991 JFK, in which Stone examines the events that led to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas in November 1963. Actor Kevin Costner played former New Orleans attorney Jim Garrison who investigated the assassination.
