Oliver Stone's Snowden Moves To 2016

Seems we will have to wait a while longer for Snowden



Oliver Stone's Snowden Moves To 2016
It won't be ready for the Oscar race

Originally looking like it might be one to enter the awards race this year, Oliver Stone’s latest, Snowden, is now reported to be eyeing a 2016 release date instead.

Once scheduled for Christmas Day in the States, the film, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley, Nicolas Cage, Timothy Olyphant, Zachary Quinto and Keith Stanfield, is now moving to an unspecified berth sometime next year. Before you start wondering about conspiracy theories – this is from the man behind JFK, and tells the story of the whistleblower who took on the US government, after all – The Hollywood Reporter’s sources say it’s because the film isn’t finished yet.

Stone is still tinkering with his latest, which chronicles the experiences of Edward Snowden (Gordon-Levitt), the whistleblowing National Security Agency contractor who began leaking classified documents to former Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald in June 2013. Snowden, currently stuck in Russia after the US cancelled his passport, has become a polarising figure between those – such as the director himself – who consider him a patriotic hero, and those who feel he’s a traitor. 

No UK release had been set, but chances are we would have seen the film early next year in any regard. Now it seems we’ll be waiting that much longer for it.
