Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s ‘Snowden’ Set for May 13 Release

Open Road has dated Joseph-Gordon Levitt starrer “Snowden” for May 13 in the U.S., five months after its original Christmas release.

The biopic, directed by Oliver Stone, had been moved off a Christmas Day release last month by Open Road.

Snowden was charged in 2013 by the U.S. Department of Justice with two counts of violating the Espionage Act and theft of government property, and his passport was revoked a week later by the U.S. Department of State. He was granted temporary asylum by Russia last year.

Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson and Timothy Olyphant also star in the Snowden pic.

Moritz Borman is producing with Eric Kopeloff and Philip Schulz-Deyle. Stone is directing from a script he co-wrote with Kieran Fitzgerald, based on Luke Harding’s book “The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man” and “Time of the Octopus,” written by Snowden’s Russian lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena.

Paramount’s “Friday the 13th” is only other title set for a May 13 release.

The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
