The first look at the pair together (above) shows Gordon-Levitt, who plays Edward Snowden, and Woodley, who plays Snowden’s girlfriend, Lindsay Mills, walking near the Washington Monument, seemingly in discussion. (Over what, I wonder…)
Snowden, a former National Security Agency contractor, came into the spotlight when he leaked sensitive documents that revealed U.S. government surveillance information, which was met with divisive response.
Stone’s biopic follows in the footsteps of director Laura Poitras’ Citizenfour, a documentary about the polarizing political figure. Snowden is currently shooting in Washington D.C., and is set to hit theaters on Christmas Day.
