WikiLeaks Posts 'Fifth Estate Film Script'
WikiLeaks has released what it says is a copy of the script of a film about it.
The Fifth Estate is a dramatic thriller based on the activities of the whistleblowing website, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as its founder Julian Assange.
But WikiLeaks has criticised the production as "irresponsible, counterproductive and harmful".
The movie, directed by Bill Condon, focuses on the growth of WikiLeaks and the controversial posting of US classified documents in 2010.
It debuted at the Toronto film festival earlier this month.
As well as leaking what it claims to be a "mature" version of the script, WikiLeaks also published a less-than-flattering commentary of the film.
"As WikiLeaks was never consulted about the Dreamworks/Disney film on us, we've given our advice for free," reads a tweet from the group.
The critique denies the release of classified documents potentially endangered more than 2,000 informants, a suggestion it says is central to the film's plot.
The organisation also criticised the central role of German WikiLeaks defector Daniel Domscheit- Berg.
The film is partly based on his memoir Inside WikiLeaks: My Time With Julian Assange At The World's Most Dangerous Website.
Mr Assange has been outspoken in his opposition to the film, which he described as a "massive propaganda attack" in January.
A UK spokesperson for the production declined to comment on the leaking of the material and the criticism from WikiLeaks.
Mr Assange remains holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he claimed political asylum in June last year to avoid extradition to Sweden to face sex crime accusations.
The Fifth Estate, which also stars Daniel Bruhl, Laura Linney and Stanley Tucci, is released in the UK on October 11.
