The first teaser for the upcoming movie about Edward Snowden has just been released. And frankly it’s not much to look at. But we still can’t wait.
Even if Oliver Stone is a shit historian (and he really, really is) he has a fun way of turning our garbage world on its head. Simply titled Snowden: An Oliver Stone Film, it should be clear from the outset that this is going to be A) probably very well-crafted, and B) probably a ham-fisted lecture. Again, we can’t fucking wait.
The movie is based on two 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. And it stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Ed Snowden. Nic Cage will also make an appearance, playing a senior intelligence official. Again, we can’t wait.
In the meantime, here’s a photo of Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Snowden:
