Open Road Films has released this new photos of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley (“The Divergent Series”) on the set of Oliver Stone’s biopic Snowden, which is currently shooting in Washington, D.C.
Snowden is written and directed by three-time Academy Award-winning filmmaker Stone (Platoon, JFK). The script is based on the books “The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man” by Luke Harding and “Time of the Octopus” by Anatoly Kucherena. The latter book mainly deals with former information analyst Snowden’s time in Russia hoping to get asylum while the United States was demanding his extradition to potentially face jail time for leaking classified information.
The film co-stars Nicolas Cage, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Olyphant, Zachary Quinto and Melissa Leo. Snowden is produced by Moritz Borman, Eric Kopeloff and Philip Schulz-Deyle, and is scheduled for release on December 25 of this year.
