SNOWDEN, THE MOVIE
That didn’t take long. The book was only published on Tuesday. Film rights to journalist Glenn Greenwald’s non-fiction book “No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA and the U.S. Surveillance State” have been bought by Sony Pictures Entertainment. The author based the book on his personal encounters with Mr. Snowden, and the media mayhem that followed.
What’s next? The producers are Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, the team best known for such James Bond films as “Skyfall” and “Quantum of Solace.”
Mr. Greenwald notes, “Growing up, I was heavily influenced by political films, and am excited about the opportunity to be part of a political film that will resonate with today’s moviegoers.”
