Network Ten has released the first trailer for its upcoming telemovie Underground: The Julian Assange Story, about the early life of the WikiLeaks founder.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

News Story with Video

Underground was written and directed by Robert Connolly (Balibo) and based on the book of the same name by Suelette Dreyfus. LaPaglia spoke in support of Assange while promoting another film last month. "I am a little dismayed by the [Australian] government's lack of effort here. He's an Australian citizen and you are innocent until proven guilty," he said. "I'm all for free speech and old-school journalism; it's telling it like it is. This is others suppressing the truth and suppressing information to the public."

Underground has already generated enormous interest overseas and will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, which begins tomorrow. The telemovie explores Assange's life as a teenage hacker.

The book "underground" by Suelette Dreyfus that this movie is based on has also credited Jullian Assange as a researcher for the book, so I would make sure to have my bull detector on full alert. But that also doesn't necessarily mean that the movie will be a fair version of events either. We will have to wait and see.

Wow. What a hatchet job.

The 'International Community' does not like Assange.

Network 10 is not going to help him.

I guess that depends on who's side Assange is really on.
