I guess it was inevitable (in fact, I'm surprised it hadn't happened sooner) but Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is apparently getting the movie treatment.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Australian reporter Andrew Fowler's upcoming book "The Most Dangerous Man in the World" has been optioned by producers Barry Josephson and Michelle Krumm.
The book/film will tell the story of Assange's life from childhood through to his founding of the whistle-blowing website.
But the big question is: who to cast? You need someone with chops who looks enough like Assange to do the job right.
If you want a character actor with burning intensity, I'd say you should go with Julian Sands.
If you want to emphasize Assange's brainiac side, I'd recommend Neil Patrick Harris.
However, if the goal is to make Assange more palatable to American audiences, maybe they should paint his life as "one wacky adventure after another" starring Owen Wilson.
And finally...if they want to go the "Dr. Doolittle" route, I have just the rebellious albino squirrel with big stones you're looking for.
