LOS ANGELES - Hollywood is planning a movie about WikiLeaks’ founder after producers Barry Josephson and Michelle Krum snapped up the rights to the forthcoming biography of Julian Assange.
The book, called “The Most Dangerous Man in the World”, by Australian journalist Andrew Fowler, follows Assange’s life from childhood to the present, including the founding of WikiLeaks in 2006 and the recent controversies concerning the disclosure of secret US government diplomatic and military documents.
Assange is currently on bail in Britain pending the outcome of an extradition request from Sweden relating to sex crimes. He is also reported to be working on his own autobiography to help meet his legal bills.
