Update regarding the Shmuger and Gibney movie

Looks like there is news about the Wikileaks movie being produced by Marc Shmuger and Alex Gibney.

First, it looks like Marc Shmuger's personal site reports that the movie is under production.  Second, IMDB lists the movie in pre-production and has begun to fill in details about the editors and other personnel associated with the project.

It still remains to be determined which movie will come out first, but at least the major studios are advancing in  their quest to produce a Wikileaks movie.  We also still await the politics that each movie will bring, but any coverage of the Wikileaks story will be influenced by all the recent "Lulzsec" incidents which are bringing some of the same guerrilla tactics to online security.

  1. Sometimes real, important, critical leaks are not hidden, or restrained by lack of funding… they are ignored by the media, even the free press in the US.

    I refer to The Expendable Project. This is the leaking of Australian government cables and letters which prove the most horrendous corruption. Lies, hiding critical evidence from a court of law, cover up…. all to avoid the US realizing how unsafe and gangster run their airports were post 9/11.

    This is about the wilful sacrifice of an innocent woman, Schapelle Corby, to slow death in an Indonesian prison. They knew she was innocent. They KNEW it. But they left her. They buried her.

    She is still there, and they are still hiding from their own cables. The Australian media still hide. Read it for yourself in the reports on here:

    Start with the Transit Report. Download the PDF. Head for section 2.4. Then read and read. Read their own letters and cables. You will be sickened.

    These are the real and courageous leaks. They are leaks that are not on the radar, when they should be on front pages across the world.
