The Snowden Identity

The movie is inevitable, so we made a trailer.

After fleeing the U.S. and then Hong Kong, Edward Snowden remains holed up somewhere in Moscow’s airport beyond the reach of American authorities. The story of the hunt for the NSA whistleblower and attempts to stop him before he leaks again seems inevitably headed for Hollywood, just like the story of WikiLeaks before it.  

But why wait? We decided to put together a trailer now.
