Snowden (2016 Movie)

Edward Snowden, the former CIA employee who copied and leaked classified information from the National Security Agency (NSA) in 2013, about global surveillance programs, is the subject of a film having his surname, which will be released this fall, on September 16 in US.
The upcoming biographical thriller, a German-American production directed by Oliver Stone, is based on the novels The Snowden Files by Luke Harding and Time of the Octopus by
Anatoly Kucherena. Edward Snowden, who has been variously called a hero, a whistleblower, a dissident, a patriot and a traitor, is played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Other cast members include Shailene Woodley, Tom Wilkinson, Nicolas Cage, Melissa Leo and Zachary Quinto.
Gordon-Levitt met personally Snowden before starting working on the movie. The two had an encounter in 2015, in Moscow, where the computer professional had been living in exile since evading the U.S. government’s attempts to arrest him for espionage. The film has been shot in Munich.
