The script for the film - which is being directed by 'Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' helmsman Bill Condon - is partially based on Daniel's book 'Inside WikiLeaks: My Time With Julian Assange at the World's Most Dangerous Website'.
Josh Singer's script is also partially adapted from David Leigh and Luke Harding's book 'WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy'.
'RoboCop' actor Joel Kinnaman was previously linked with the role of Daniel, while Jeremy Renner has expressed a wish to portray Assange.
The DreamWorks-produced film is expected to go into production next year.
Assange is wanted in Sweden to face questioning over a sexual assault investigation.
He has been living in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since June 2012.
British officials say he will be arrested if he steps out of the building.
