Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been announced as the actor to take on the role of Edward Snowden in an upcoming film.

The actor will play the role of the NSA whistleblower who revealed the US government’s extensive phone and internet surveillance activities last year. The movie’s screenplay was adapted from two books: “The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man” by Luke Harding and “Time of the Octopus” by Anatoly Kucherena.

The film will be written by two time Oscar winner Oliver Stone, known for “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” and “Savages”. Production will begin in January. The film is amongst an increasing number of tech-themed movies, such as Alan Sorkin’s “The Social Network” from 2010 and the upcoming film about Steve Jobs from the same writer.
