Shailene Woodley to play Edward Snowden's girlfriend
Los Angeles: Actress Shailene Woodley is reportedly in talks to portray US whistleblower Edward Snowden's girlfriend in “The Snowden Files”.
The 23-year-old would portray the role of Lindsay Mills, a dancer who recently moved to Moscow to live with exiled Snowden, reports contactmusic.com.
Earlier, actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt was roped in to play the former technical contractor and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) employee in the film.
The film will be based on Snowden's Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena's novel “Time Of The Octopus”.
Snowden was charged with committing espionage against America after confessing to leaking confidential information on mass surveillance operations undertaken by the US and British government officials on their own citizens.
Directed by Oliver Stone, the film is slated to begin production in Munich, Germany in January.
