There are a number of projects in development about WikiLeaks and/or WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, but one such film may now be moving closer to a reality.

Deadline reports, that Jeremy Renner is apparently keen on playing Assange in DreamWorks’ iteration of the story, with Kinsey and director Bill Condon looking at possible taking the helm.  No solid movement has been made concerning Renner or Condon, but the two would make an interesting team to tackle one of the most high profile stories of the last decade. 
Jeremy Renner to play Julian Assange maybe!!
DreamWorks’ project is based on two books: David Leigh and Luke Harding’s WikiLeakes: Inside Julian Assange’s War on Secrecy and Daniel Domscheit-Berg’s Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World’s Most Dangerous Website. 

Deadline notes that producers are considering moving away from DreamWorks and seeking independent financing, but that’s not a done deal yet either.

HBO and BBC are working on their own WikiLeaks project, while financier Megan Ellison is also developing a project of her own that may be scripted by The Hurt Locker’s Mark Boal.  Condon is currently busy with post-production on the last installment in the Twilight franchise, and Renner is gearing up to shoot David O. Russell’s next currently untitled feature.
