Melissa Leo and Bill Pullman to return for The Equalizer 2

Pedro Pascal in talks to menace Denzel Washington in The Equalizer 2

Review: Snowden (TIFF 2016)

PLOT: The true story of Edward Snowden ( Joseph Gordon-Levitt ), from his recruitment into the CIA to his eventual leaking of top-secret NSA documents, to his eventual exile and status as one of the world’s most wanted men.
