If he is smart, he will cast Bill Hader as Julian Assange.
According to the article, “It’s Woodward and Bernstein meets Stieg Larsson meets Jason Bourne.”
I can’t wait for the line in the script “Get me Deep Throat who Played with Fire!”
-Bill Hader as Julian Assange
We’re gonna need a bigger boot disk
Diplomatic secrets find a way.
So now we know how the world will end in 2012. Spielberg will make a Wikileaks movie on which the studios will spend copious amounts of money to make sure it isn’t pirated or leaked, causing an ouroboros of irony that will collapse the universe.
“It’s Woodward and Bernstein meets Stieg Larsson meets Jason Bourne.”
Two journalists, while on an innocent shopping trip to purchase MacBooks and Ikea furniture, are brutally and sadistically raped by a rogue covert spy under the employ of Richard Nixon’s ghost.
Two journalists get drunk while reminiscing about their time at the Washington Post get so drunk on absinthe, they end up hallucinating conversations with a dead Swedish author and a fictional Robert Ludlum character.
“Drop the ‘the’. Just ‘Wikileaks’.”
I think the movie should be called “The Wikileaks.” Maybe with an exclamation point in the title.
There you go.
Perfect! Call Spielberg!
You know what’s cooler than a million Andrew Garfields a billion Andrew Garfields? I’m saying: please put Andrew Garfield in this movie!!!
He’s so adorable, but my attraction to him makes me feel like I belong in a jail cell for 8-10 years.

I’d Hit That.
Any world on whether his “nerdy friend” George Lucas will be involved??
Any world where George Lucas is uninvolved is where I want to be.
Word. As in, things I cannot spell.
I wouldn’t expect anyone who wears glasses from 1987 to be this timely.
Clay Aiken as Bradley Manning, plz.
I can’t wait for the special edition re-release where the diplomatic cables are replaced with walkie-talkies.
Have we ruled Cate Blanchett out as Assange yet? Don’t.
i’m sorry it’s meant to be Mulligan.
This is the best start of a “You ever give a MAN a foot massage?” debate.
Oh god, does this mean Julian Assange will have a precocious preteen sidekick?
Oh man, one of the “related” stories attached to the link was “Bill Clinton turns down 30 Rock Appearance.” Oh man. Bummer.
I wish I had never known that was a possibility. Ignorance is bliss, folks.
Why wait? Why not cross the Wikileaks movie with the Tintin movie? We will call it WikiWiki. This guy knows what I’m talking about:
