MOSCOW (AFP): Hollywood director Oliver Stone has acquired movie rights to a political thriller penned by US whistle-blower Edward Snowden’s Russian lawyer, the pro-Kremlin attorney said on Wednesday. ‘The rights to my book have been handed over to Oliver Stone and producer Moritz Borman,’ Anatoly Kucherena told AFP. ‘He (Stone) met with me, he did not meet with Snowden. The book will be published later.’ Kucherena is completing a potboiler dubbed the ‘Time of the Octopus’ which tells the story of a US whistle-blower and is loosely based on Snowden’s experiences.
