Julian Assange, the founder WikiLeaks who has been trapped in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for seven months trying to avoid extradition to Sweden over sexual assault allegations, now has another thing to be upset over: his biopic.

The website Deadline reports that while taking part in a video chat on Wednesday for the Oxford Union debate, Mr. Assange called the upcoming DreamWorks film on his life a “massive propaganda attack on WikiLeaks and the character of my staff.”

“The Fifth Estate” is scheduled to be released in theaters in November and will star British actor Benedict Cumberbach as Mr. Assange.
