Steven Spielberg's DreamWorks has acquired the screen rights to WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy by Guardian journalists David Leigh and Luke Harding. The movie is being "conceived as an investigative thriller in the mold of All the President's Men."

Alan Rusbridger, editor-in-chief, Guardian News & Media, called the project "Woodward and Bernstein meets Stieg Larsson meets Jason Bourne. Plus the odd moment of sheer farce and, in Julian Assange, a compelling character who goes beyond what any Hollywood scriptwriter would dare to invent."

DreamWorks has also secured rights to Inside WikiLeaks by Daniel Domscheit-Berg, Assange's former colleague. Deadline.com suggested that a "good template for what they are thinking is The Social Network, where Aaron Sorkin not only used the Ben Mezrich book The Accidental Billionaires as a resource, but gathered actual testimony from the lawsuits filed against Mark Zuckerberg that detailed the formation of Facebook and provided high drama. That allowed the film to be made without a rights deal from Zuckerberg."

Pure Orwellian propaganda. Don't waste your time.
