Directed by Oliver Stone, Gordon-Levitt would be playing the Snowden’s role. Among other Hollywood stars, Nicolas Cage, Timothy Olyphant would be playing important roles. It has already been reported that both Oliver Stone and Gordon-Levitt met with Snowden last year in Moscow.
While questioned by the reporter that why Oliver Stone moved to Germany to shoot the film? He replied,”We moved to Germany, because we did not feel comfortable in the U.S.,.. We felt like we were at risk here. We didn’t know what the NSA might do, so we ended up in Munich, which was a beautiful experience.”
