Journalist Glenn Greenwald's new book No Place To Hide covers the NSA and its current whistleblower, Edward Snowden. The book is already becoming popular and given the topic, it could easily be turned into a movie. Well, it turns out that Sony feels the same way, as it has announced that it now owns the rights to the Edward Snowden story as it is told in Greenwald's book.
Rather than a documentary--which could be interesting as well--it sounds like Sony will be turning the book into a full-fledged blockbuster. The movie will reportedly be produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, both of whom worked on the recent James Bond movies.
Even if you are not actively trying to keep up with all of the NSA news, you have likely heard about whistleblower Edward Snowden and the work that he has done. Now that one of the main journalists involved in the NSA revelations has come out with a book, apparently a movie is just around the corner.
Terms of the deal between Greenwald and Sony have not been made public.
