Jeremy Renner As Julian Assange?

Jeremy Renner (“The Bourne Legacy”) is said to be “looking hard” at playing infamous Australian journalist and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in the upcoming film about the website in development at DreamWorks reports Deadline.

Bill Condon (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn”) has reportedly been “having conversations” over the project but nothing is set for either him or Renner. The film, based on two books about the site and Assange, is also said to be considering independent financing.

The project is one of several Assange films in development, others include Alex Gibney’s documentary and features (both big screen and small) in development at HBO, Universal, Josephson Entertainment, Matchbox Pictures, and with producer Megan Ellison.
