The story of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and his website's publishing of thousands of secret U.S. military documents is apparently being made into a movie.

British newspaper The Guardian said Steven Spielberg's DreamWorks Studio has bought screen rights to its book about Assange.

The editor described the proposed film as "Woodward and Bernstein meets Stieg Larsson meets Jason Bourne."

No writer, director or cast have been lined up.
