Multiple sources have confirmed to ScreenDaily that Appian Way, which has a production deal with Warner Bros., is the front-runner in the race to secure rights. The production company was unavailable for comment.
Journalist Glenn Greenwald, who broke the Guardian’s expose story about the Nsa’s mass surveillance operation and who is now writing a book about Snowden and the Nsa, confirmed to Screen that “there have been negotiations” [with an unnamed company/companies] for rights but that a deal has yet to be concluded.
Greenwald recently struck a deal with publisher Metropolitan Books to write a book about Nsa surveillance, due for publication in March 2014. New York-based agency Writers House represents the screen rights.
