Remember that guy who leaked all of that classified government information and caused a big stir? If for some reason the memory is currently escaping you, you’ll soon have a movie to remind you of Julian Assange and his Wikileaks operation. According to Variety, Josephson Entertainment and Michelle Krumm Productions have optioned the rights to a Julian Assange biopic.
The film, which is to be based on the upcoming Andrew Fowler biography The Most Dangerous Man in the World, is being developed as a drama/thriller. Although in its infancy, producer Barry Josephson is already likening the film to 1976’s four-time Oscar-winner All the President’s Men as “this generation’s suspenseful drama with global impact.” In addition to covering Assange’s recent publicity, the film (like Fowler’s biography) will dip all the way back into Assange’s childhood and cover major events leading up to his Wikileaks project. As of now, there is no word on the film’s desired release date.
