Oliver Stone’s latest project is Snowden, which tells the true story of Edward Snowden, the NSA contractor who ultimately blew the whistle on the government branch, leaking incriminating classified documents to the press which revealed the NSA’s eyebrow-raising surveillance operations. He was previously the subject of the Oscar-winning documentary Citizenfour, and now he’s the subject of Stone’s newest narrative film, which has revealed a new image featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the role of Snowden.

There’s no better way to turn any family get-together into a screaming match than to bring up Edward Snowden, the CIA whistleblower who revealed the extent of NSA surveillance on American citizens and became an international fugitive. You know, one man’s patriot is another man’s traitor and so on and so forth. Well, director Oliver Stone is looking to ruin a whole bunch of Christmas dinners this year with Snowden, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the most polarizing figure in modern American history. Consider the release of two images of Gordon-Levitt as Snowden your cue to start prepping for your next family argument.

So, what’s next for Timothy Olyphant now that Justified is coming to an end? The actor appears to be making the leap back to the big screen, and is currently being eyed for a role in Oliver Stone’s untitled Edward Snowden film. Snowden is the subject of Laura Poitras’ acclaimed documentary Citizenfour, which is the frontrunner to take home the Best Documentary Feature Oscar at this Sunday’s Academy Awards. But Poitras’ documentary doesn’t appear to be the last we’ll hear on the subject.

Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most important figures in twentieth century America, which makes it odd that he's yet to receive the cinematic bio-pic treatment. Now it looks like Oliver Stone will bring his story to the big screen, with 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' star Jamie Foxx playing the famous civil rights leader.

Finales always tend toward the polarizing, but most would agree that the 'Breaking Bad' ultimate end "Felina" at least wrapped up the story of Walter White in a conclusive manner (whether or not you believe it to have happened in real life, or inside Walter's head). That said, two high-profile pop culture icons have spoken out against the 'Breaking Bad' series finale, and while we'd be hard pressed to link acclaimed director Oliver Stone and Britney Spears, their bizarre criticisms certainly merit mention.

If you've seen any of Oliver Stone's films, chances are strong that you've glimpsed his son, Sean. Sometimes, he's a key character (like young Jim Morrison in 'The Doors') and sometimes, he's just a tiny cameo (like "Fraternity Pledge #1" in 'W'). In any case, it looks like he's followed in his father's footsteps and has jumped behind the camera. In fact, his feature debut, a horror movie titled 'Greystone Park,' has a trailer and a release date.

'Savages' Review

I took very few notes as I watched Oliver Stone's 'Savages.' I basically have one phrase in large print in the center of the page: “I can't tell if I'm supposed to be taking this seriously.”
It's underlined. Three times.
'Savages' is nothing if not unique. Oh, the basic plot isn't unique - a group of crafty outsiders take on the mob – but the specifics are so peculiar that you'll feel compelled to both applaud and mutter WTF. Often at the same time.
