Nicolas Cage is set to join Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley and Zachary Quinto in Oliver Stone’s ‘Snowden’ film, which is currently in production.
Nicolas Cage is set to play a former U.S. Intelligence Official in the Oliver Stone-directed thriller, “The Snowden Files.”
According to Variety, the project is currently filming in Munich. The movie will be based on two books, “Time of the Octopus” by Snowden’s lawyer in Russia, Anatoly Kucherena, and “The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man” by Guardian journalist Luke Harding.
Gordon-Levitt portrays the NSA leaker while Woodley plays his on-screen girlfriend.
“Citizenfour”, a documentary about Snowden by director Laura Poitras, won Best Documentary trophy at the Sunday, February 22 Oscars. At the event, host Neil Patrick Harris joked that Snowden “couldn’t be here for some treason.”
