THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays the NSA whistleblower in the biopic, which also stars Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo and Nicolas Cage and will screen in an out-of-competition slot.
Oliver Stone’s biopic Snowden, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the NSA whistleblower, will get its European premiere at the 64th edition of the San Sebastian Festival.
The film will screen in the Spanish festival’s official selection in an out-of-competition slot. The cast also includes Shailene Woodley (The Descendants, Divergent), Melissa Leo and Nicolas Cage.
It will be Stone’s seventh visit to the festival, but the first time one of his films has been included in the official selection. In 1986, he brought Salvador to the event for a screening that marked the first at the big Velodrome, where he later also showed Natural Born Killers (1994) and World Trade Center (2006). His films Talk Radio (1989), Looking for Fidel (2004), Alexander: The Ultimate Cut and The Untold History of the United States (2013) were also all screened at the festival. In 2012, Stone received the Donostia Award for lifetime achievement at the festival.
Snowden, shot in Germany, the U.S., China and Russia, is a Sacha Inc./KrautPack Entertainment production. Open Road will release it in the United States on Sept. 16. Wild Bunch is responsible for international distribution.
San Sebastian will unveil more titles for its official selection in the coming weeks. The festival runs Sept. 16-Sept. 24.
Over a 100 high-quality photos of Shailene attending ELLE’s Women in Hollywood Awards (October 19) have been added to the gallery!
Hey everyone, my name is Renee and I’m the new owner of Simply Shailene Woodley. I’d like to thank Alexa for letting me take over the site, Shailene is one of my favourite actresses and it’s gonna be a pleasure to run a fansite for her!
I have quite a bit to update the site with over the next few weeks, but for now I’ve put up some gorgeous new themes designed by my super talented friend Nicole! I hope you like them as much as I do.
The first teaser for Snowden has been released, and although it features no footage from the film, hopefully we’ll it means that a theatrical trailer will be coming sooner rather than later. I would also like to apologize for the lack of updates of late–news has been slow and unfortunately I am unable to post on set photos from Allegiant. I do have a few things planned for our third anniversary of being online, however-so stay tuned for those!
With huge thanks to my friend Gabby, I’ve uploaded over 700 photos of Shailene attending the MTV Movie Awards last Sunday (April 12). There is no doubt that Shai was the star of the show, taking home three awards including Best Female Performance for her incredible work in The Fault in Our Stars, Best Kiss (also for TFiOS and shared with Ansel Elgort), and also the Trailblazer Award, which was presented to her by Miles Teller. Many congratulations to her, and apologies, once again for my lateness in adding these photos!
At long last I have added scans from Shailene’s full editorial (and accompanying interview) in NYLON to the gallery. You’ve no doubt seen these already by now, but for those who haven’t, enjoy!
