Oliver Stone is working on a movie about Edward Snowden, which is already great news. But even better is that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks to play the whistle blower himself, according to The Hollywood Reporter

We know for sure that Stone is writing and directing a film on the man who blew up the NSA—based on the two books written by journalist Luke Harding and Snowden's lawyer Anatoly Kucherena. 

Unlike many movies based on true stories, Gordon-Levitt doesn't look a thing like Snowden. One of them (we won't say who) is much better looking. But, hey, makeup could do wonders. And at the very least we can always count on JGL acting his ass off, even if the resemblance isn't uncanny.
