Ifans, Richardson Join Snowden Biopic

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s casting of Timothy Olyphant, actors Rhys Ifans and Joely Richardson have joined the quickly inflating cast of Oliver Stone’s Edward Snowden biopic at Open Road Films.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays the young American who fled to Russia seeking asylum after making public classified NSA documents. He is viewed as both a traitor and a hero.

Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto and Tom Wilkinson also star in the film which has been slated for release on Christmas Day. Stone and Kieran Fitzgerald penned the script.
