A biopic thriller about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is in the works at Josephson Entertainment and Michelle Krumm Prouctions reports Variety.
The production companies have optioned feature rights to Andrew Fowler’s upcoming biography “The Most Dangerous Man in the World” which is described as in-depth look at Assange from his childhood growing up on Magnetic Island in Queensland, Australia to the current day with his anti-secrecy Wiki-Leaks “revolution.”
Assange founded the Wiki-Leaks site in 2006 and has published secret U.S. diplomatic cables about American involvement in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and materials about toxic waste dumping in Africa and Guantanamo Bay procedures plus Church of Scientology manuals.
Fowler first interviewed Assange last May. Michelle Krumm (“All Good Things,” “Bobby”) will produce the film along with Barry Josephson (“Enchanted,” Fox’s “Bones”). L.H. Adonis will co-produce.
