Joseph Gordon-Levitt aces his aptitude test in a new Snowden movie clip
Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone, who brought Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, Wall Street and JFK to the big screen, tackles the fascinating true story of Edward Snowden. The politically-charged thriller also stars Shailene Woodley and reveals the incredible untold personal story of 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 theaters on September 16 and check back with us next month for exclusive video interviews with the Snowden cast.
