According to Iceland Review, “American film production company DreamWorks will shoot scenes in Reykjavík, Iceland for an upcoming film on Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.” The project is currently being shot under the title The Man Who Sold the World.
It is expected that filming will take place in and around the capital area in January. Later on the project will head to Berlin and Belgium for further filming.
The script was written by screenwriter Josh Singer, who stated that in order to make the movie more factual he has consulted with Birgitta Jónsdóttir, former WikiLeaks volunteer and MP for the Movement.
While actor Benedict Cumberbatch, of the BBC adaptation series Sherlock, is said to play Assange, there still hasn’t been anyone cast for other roles including Birgitta’s part.
The movie will be directed by Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and 2).
We will keep you informed about possible release dates and other information as the project moves along.
