As the sound of the playgrounds faded, the despair set in. Very odd, what happens in a world without children’s voices.

Variety is even more explicit: “Sources tell Variety that Stone has offered the part to Joseph Gordon-Levitt and that the actor has agreed to do it. Though negotiations have not yet begun, both sides want the deal to happen.”

My 2 cents:

I’m a bit torn on this one but not because of the controversy surrounding the subject and director.

The Snowden story had an immense world wide impact, so it’s inevitably going to get the movie treatment. But I feel that at this point we only know half of the story - literally. We don’t know how the story ends with Snowden now sitting in Russia. It seems too early for a movie about him, even if it focuses only on a fraction of his story. It looks like Stone is rushing to to be the first one to get this movie out and that combined with my concern above doesn’t bode well for how the movie will be regarded in the long run.

As for Stone, I like that Joe is slowly working through the classics and it’s nearly impossible to say “no” when someone like Spielberg, Zemeckis or Stone wants you for their project. But I wish, Joe would collaborate more  with exciting contemporary directors, whose relevant films weren’t released a decade or two ago.

From an acting viewpoint this is golden for Joe though.

100% agree with everything

Anonymous said: Why are people freaking out about Joseph portraying Edward Snowden? Why is that such a big deal?? He's simply going to a different character. I'm concerned about Oliver Stone though--he can be a hit or miss for me. Most of the stuff he makes is also very inaccurate. I'd rather he portray Snowden with a different director.

YES. Idk, it’s hard for me to judge: I’m not American and I prefer not to pretend that I know and understand too much about politics of other countries as long as it doesn’t concern mine. (See, I didn’t even know People’s Climate March is some kind of a socialist event, I thought it was purely ecological)) I’m not freaking out about Snowden, I’m freaking out about Stone who never struck me as particularly smart or talented. I’m also very concerned about projects which are based on recent and thus very controversial events. In other circumstances I’d hope that it wouldn’t pretend to be an accurate historical portrayal, but just a work of fiction vaguely based on true events, but in case of Stone it’s unlikely to turn out this way, so as usual I expect the worst – a biased, pretentious and boring biopic only watchable thanks to Joe.

As for haters, I suppose the number of them will dramatically rise if this movie does happen. People seem to have very strong feelings towards Snowden and they of course will feel the same way about the movie and about Joe, too. With the subject so sensitive it’s hard to distance yourself from the story.

However, if I stop being a downer for a second, there are quite a few positive points: it’s gonna be a nice acting challenge for Joe (I hope there’s at least some ambiguousness in the scripts), it’ll give him some credit and it will kinda pull him away from this oh-what-a-cutie typecasting towards more serious kind of roles which might have a good outcome in the future.

Anyway, let’s wait for the confirmation first. )

Okay, guys, let’s chill. First, it’s a rumor so far. Second, what we should be thinking about is what an interesting, controversial role that is. (Well, I personally don’t give a shit about Snowden but I understand it must be a raw spot for Americans.) Third, whatever you make of Stone (and I don’t make much) this job should give Joe a lot of good publicity.

well i guess he’ll have to come here to meet the guy he’s gonna play )

I don’t quite see Joe NOT working with Stone, though.

22 9 / 2014

I am very confused and not in a good way.
