Oliver Stone to direct film about Edward Snowden

Because naturally we can't have anything happen and not have a movie made about it.

Director Oliver Stone is attached to direct a film about NSA hacker Edward Snowden. The film will apparently be based off The Snowden Files, a novel by Luke Harding. It explores how Snowden reached the NSA ranks only to turn around and leak American secrets and information about global surveillance. Stone is hoping to start production by the end of this year as a rival Snowden film, No Place to Hide, is already in the works.

Stone is no rookie to films like this as he has directed pictures based on JFK, The Vietnam War (aka, Platoon), George W. Bush (W.), and Alexander the Great (Alexander).
