Assange Movies Finally On the Way

Major NYT today on whatever happened to all those movie deals for articles and books on WikiLeaks early on.  We learn that Alex Gibney doc is coming to Sundance, show "empathy" for Bradley Manning, hits NYT treatment of Assange,  but disputes notion that Swedish sex case is tied to U.S. prosecution.  Also, Gibney hoping for separate flick on Manning.  Other projects still in the works,  although it looks like Mark Boal is now begging off doing screenplay--has even asked former NYT editor Bill Keller if he'd like to write it.

If you're interested, though never bought for the screen, I wrote the first two books on WikiLeaks and Manning, and collaborated with Kevin Gosztola on another.
