His financial crisis documentary Inside Job took home the Academy Award for Best Documentary earlier this year, but now director Charles Ferguson is moving into the realm of fact-based drama for HBO. Deadline reports he will be at the helm of a new film about WikiLeaks founder and headline grabber Julian Assange. HBO is working with BBC on the project which will use Raffi Khatchadourian’s New Yorker article, No Secrets: Julian Assange’s Mission for Total Transparency, as the source material. The article itself follows Assange and WikiLeaks operatives as they embark on their mission to leak a 38-minute classified video taken inside the cockpit of a U.S. Army Apache Helicopter. With as much attention as Assange has gotten in the news recently, the film should certainly be of interest to viewers. Can I suggest Neil Patrick Harris to play Assange?

    I hope Oliver Stone directs this and exposes the truth.

    I see Julian Assange as more of a publicity hound than anything else. I believe his version of the truth just about as much as, say, Sarah Palin’s version. Ok, that might be a bit harsh, but you get the idea. I think a movie about him that calls his motives into question could be interesting, but one holding him up as some virtuous seeker of knowledge wouldn’t be at all engaging.

    I suggestef NPH on a previoud Collider article about a Assange film :-)

    Hopefully the film details Assange’s questional handling of the Nostradamus sports picks. Nostradamus predicted a Celtics win on May 1, 2011 nearly 500 years ago, also an Angels win over the Rays. Assange only released this reluctantly but what else is he holding? … http://placeitonluckydan.com/2011/03/wikileaks-nostradamus-sports-picks/
