SNOW­DEN, THE MOVIE

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

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.”
