Sony Pictures have announced that they’ve optioned the film rights to ‘No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State,’ the new book by Glenn Greenwald, whose reporting on the revelations contained in Snowden’s top-secret NSA documents won the Pulitzer Prize for The Guardian newspaper. Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli of EON Productions, the team behind the blockbuster James Bond franchise, will produce the film.

Glenn Greenwald’s book, which was released worldwide yesterday via Metropolitan Books, examines the journalist’s personal involvement in working with Snowden to break numerous stories about the U.S. government’s intelligence gathering operations. The book is both a personal narrative of the events as they unfolded and a historical reflection on the broader implications of the NSA’s activities.
