Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Charles Ferguson (Inside Job) has come on board to direct HBO Films’ movie about Julian Assange should it be greenlighted for production. The project, a co-production with the BBC, is based on source material that includes Raffi Khatchadourian’s June 7, 2010, article in The New Yorker No Secrets: Julian Assange’s Mission for Total Transparency, which takes an in-depth look at Assange and follows him and his WikiLeaks operatives as they prepare to leak a 38-minute classified video filmed from inside of the cockpit of an U.S. Army Apache Helicopter. The film is being executive produced by Joshua Maurer and Alixandre Witlin of City Entertainment and David Stern of KippSter Entertainment. Ferguson will also produce with producing partner Audrey Marrs. A writer for the project is expected to be locked in soon. This marks the first narrative project for Ferguson, who is also eying a transition to feature film directing. In addition to Inside Job, he wrote, directed and produced the Oscar-nominated documentary No End in Sight.
