This email continues to circulate as I received it tonight. I am in the US and as some concern has been raised to that end I am replying here. FWIW. I am posting the full header and attaching a screenshot of the email. Personally I remain unclear as to the intentions here so I’ll be reviewing this thread again. I will add additional information if/when I come across any. Hope this helps.
Stay safe. Stay vigilant!

Today WikiLeaks publishes the first letter from Julian Assange to Benedict Cumberbatch regarding “The Fifth Estate”, a Dreamworks movie about WikiLeaks set to open in the UK on Friday 11 Oct, and in the US on Friday 18 Oct. The press release about this letter is here. The letter was sent to Benedict Cumberbatch after he made overtures to contact Julian Assange in January this year, immediately before principal photography commenced.
Date: Tue, 15 Jan 2013
From: Julian Assange
To: Benedict Cumberbatch Subject: Message from Assange
My assistants communicated your request to me, and I have given it a lot of thought and examined your previous work, which I am fond of.
I think I would enjoy meeting you.
The bond that develops between an actor and a living subject is significant.
If the film reaches distribution we will forever be correlated in the public imagination. Our paths will be forever entwined. Each of us will be granted standing to comment on the other for many years to come and others will compare our characters and trajectories.
But I must speak directly.
I hope that you will take such directness as a mark of respect, and not as an unkindness.
I believe you are a good person, but I do not believe that this film is a good film.
I do not believe it is going to be positive for me or the people I care about. Read the rest of this entry »
