Gibney is clearly well-suited to making a film about Manning; the director's last effort was the lauded Sundance documentary We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks and according to statements he made to Variety he's passionate about the Manning case. That case culminated yesterday after a three-year legal ordeal and left Manning, who provided WikiLeaks with a massive trove of government documents and video, looking at a maximum sentence of more than years behind bars. Manning had already pleaded guilty to many lesser charges before the trail began in June and took "full responsibility" for providing the classified information to the secret-spilling site.
In finding Manning guilty on the Espionage Act and theft counts, the judge—Col.

What's probably most interesting about the Manning movie news is that Gibney is going after a dramatic feature film and not a documentary. Between and the filmmaker turned out four docs a year, many of them well-received, so it will be fascinating to see what he does with a Manning film, especially since it's still based on real-life events. Even though it's likely still a few years out, Gibney's film will be in good company amidst more than a few films about the WikiLeaks case.
However, all those films have focused largely on WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, so a film looking at the life of Manning could serve as a much different perspective on the story of WikiLeaks and of whistleblowing broadly—especially now that Edward Snowden's National Security Agency leaks are keeping the issue very much in the forefront.
Obviously it will be a long time before Gibney's Manning flick comes to theaters, but it's amazing filmmakers are already developing movies for a story that is still very much happening right now—the sentencing phase of Manning's court-martial began today. Army Pfc.
