Possibly coming soon to a cinema near you will be the story of whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange.

A production company has optioned The Most Dangerous Man in the World, a biography of Assange written by Andrew Fowler. The company reportedly plans to create a “suspenseful drama”.

“As soon as I met Andrew and read a few chapters of his profound book, I knew that – with his incredibly extensive depth of knowledge – it would enable us to bring a thought-provoking thriller to the screen,” producer Michelle Krumm told Variety.

Actor Daniel Craig’s name has been bandied about as one possibility to play the lead role, along with actor Simon Baker.
