Julian Assange: Casting the inevitable WikiLeaks movie

julian-assange-paul-bettany.jpgThe WikiLeaks story got still weirder Tuesday (Dec. 7) when its founder, Julian Assange, turned himself in to British police over a sex-crimes investigation in Sweden, then was refused bail after vowing he'd fight extradition.

That's on top of the ongoing controversy over WikiLeaks' release of diplomatic cables and intelligence reports, promised revelations about a big U.S. bank and Assange's pledge to release a heavily encrypted "insurance" file if anything should happen to him. We're not the first people to remark that it all sounds like some twisted spy movie -- and we're also pretty certain that more than one writer is bent over his or her laptop working on a treatment for "WikiLeaks: The Film."
