WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange's Life to Be Exposed in Biopic
Julian Assange, a founder of controversial website WikiLeaks, is apparently an interesting subject for filmmakers. His life is about to be turned into a big screen project, according to Variety. Josephson Entertainment and Michelle Krumm Productions have optioned an upcoming biography of Assange.
Entitled "The Most Dangerous Man in the World", the book is written by Andrew Fowler and covers major events in Assange's life from his childhood leading up to his website WikiLeaks which was launched in 2006. The reporter for the Australian news show "Foreign Correspondent" has repeatedly interviewed Assange, including a famous report last June released shortly after Assange was said to have gone into hiding.
Michelle Krumm, Barry Josephson and L.H. Adonis are producing the project which is being developed as a drama/thriller. There is still no word on a planned release date for this untitled Julian Assange biopic.
Julian Assange is currently under house arrest in England. He is wanted by Swedish authorities who have accused him of sex crimes. As of late, the 39-year-old Australian caused a stir after releasing American diplomatic cables.
