Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Oliver Stone are taking over Hall H with Snowden

ComingSoon.net is on the scene in San Diego and we’re live-blogging the whole event starting at 11:45 a.m. Pacific Time. Check it out in the embedded blog below for live updates and check back all weekend for up to the minute coverage of SDCC 2016’s biggest events.
The upcoming thriller reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the polarizing figure who exposed shocking illegal surveillance activities by the NSA and became one of the most wanted men in the world. He is considered a hero by some, and a traitor by others.
Snowden is written and directed by Oliver Stone (Platoon, JFK), 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 cast of Snowden also includes Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, Nicolas Cage, Scott Eastwood, Joely Richardson, Timothy Olyphant and Ben Schnetzer. Snowden is produced by Moritz Borman, Eric Kopeloff and Philip Schulz-Deyle. Look for it to hit the big screen September 16.
