Although Oliver Stone’s upcoming Edward Snowden biopic was delayed a couple of times last year, it seems to be back on track for a September release this year. And let’s face it, a September release makes a lot more sense than a Christmas or summer one. The movie stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the now world famous whistleblower who leaked classified NSA documents to expose their illegal surveillance program (among other things). While opinions are obviously divided on whether he should be considered a hero or a traitor, it looks like Stone is aiming to present this as more of a suspense thriller than anything. That’s probably a smart approach, although it is unlikely to match the intense immediacy of the documentary Citizenfour. Snowden co-stars Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, Nicolas Cage, Scott Eastwood and Timothy Olyphant, and it hits theatres on Sept. 16th.
