WikiLeaks Movie Coming to Theaters -- Who Should Play Julian Assange?

julian assangeIt was really only a matter of time, but it looks like a movie about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is officially in the works. According to Variety, the suspenseful "thriller" will be based on Andrew Fowler's forthcoming biography of Assange, 'The Most Dangerous Man in the World.' Michelle Krumm will produce the biopic, alongside Barry Josephson, whose production credits include TV's 'Bones.' No word yet on who will play Assange, but expect plenty of speculation leading up to the announcement. For what it's worth, Gawker has Leonardo DiCaprio as its unofficial front-runner, but Tilda Swinton seems to be a strong dark horse.
