Open Road Films is pushing back the release of Oliver Stone’s “Snowden” from May 13 to September 16.
The biopic stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as controversial NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, while Shailene Woodley plays Snowden’s girlfriend, Lindsay Mills, said the Hollywood Reporter.
It’s the third time the release date of “Snowden” has been altered. It was originally set to open December 25, 2015, in time for consideration this awards season.
Open Road home of Oscar contender “Spotlight” made the decision in October to move the biopic to May 13, sparking buzz that the film would make its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
