Exp No Pokemon Deluge

Spielberg bought the film rights to two books on WikiLeaks

not going to happen long before a film began to materialize on WikiLeaks and its creator Julian Assange. In fact, there are several smaller productions in various stages, but who took the first step to major league level was not an opportunist anyone, but a renowned Steven Spielberg.

The "father" of ET has just acquired the film rights to the books "WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy" by journalists David Leigh and Luke Harding, the Guardian and "Inside WikiLeaks, the former aide of Assange, Daniel Domscheit-Berg.

Thus, the text would form an investigative thriller like what it was All the President's Men, which will address the Assange turbulent life, from his childhood traveling and until the creation of the controversial site in 2006. The formula is also similar to the one implemented by Aaron Sorkin in The Social Network, that was not based only on the book The Accidental Billionaires (Ben Mezrich), but also drew on a series of lawsuits involved.

And despite the fact that DreamWorks owns the rights to make a film based on these books in particular are not warranted to be the first to see the light, but surely that is the most complete, thanks the close link between Assange and The Guardian.

Anyway, now the real story has not yet reached its end, so you have to be patient to see the story on the big screen.
