The documentary on the life of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has finally found a studio in Showtime.

The rights of the film titled Risk, a project by acclaimed documentarian Laura Poitras, have been secured by the network, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“It is an exciting time to be working with Showtime and Neon. Both organisations are thinking outside the box about how to bring complex stories to a wide audience. I am thrilled to team up with them on Risk,” said Poitras.

The film has been under-production for six years now and will give a glimpse into the life of Assange and those around him like never before.
Poitras' last project was 2015's Oscar-winning documentary “CitizenFour”, which starred American computer programmer and former CIA employee, Edward Snowden.
