Edward Snowden NSA whistleblowing story to be filmed by Oliver Stone

Oliver Stone is just not someone to be taken lightly. The person is one of the strongest directors the film industry has ever come across and not every other person has won an Oscar so we can definitely know his worth. He has dealt with the deadliest and grimmest of issues including Kennedy assassination and the Watergate break-in, the Vietnam conflict and the Bush administration's "war on terror" and now his next stop is going to be his adaptation of The Snowden Files, which is an account of the ongoing NSA scandal originally written by the Guardian journalist Luke Harding.

The thriller is going to concentrate on the experiences of the American whistleblower Edward Snowden who is a contractor at the National Security Agency. This is quite a complicated matter to choose since he has been known to have leaked thousands of classified documents to the former Guardian columnist Glenn Greenwald back in June 2013.

The producers of the film will include Stone's regular business partner Moritz Borman alongside Harding and there will be other Guardian journalists involved too who will serve as production and story consultants. "This is one of the greatest stories of our time," Stone, 67, said in a statement. "A real challenge. I'm glad to have the Guardian working with us."

"The story of Edward Snowden is truly extraordinary, and the unprecedented revelations he brought to light have forever transformed our understanding of - and relationship with - government and technology," said Alan Rusbridger, the Guardian's editor-in-chief. "We're delighted to be working with Oliver Stone and Moritz Borman on the film."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
