More and more we’ve seen actors taking an interest in the behind the scenes/production process of film making. According to The Hollywood Reporter,Tom Hardy, Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio are the latest stars to make that move, teaming up to produce an anti-poaching drama . Hardy developed the idea for the film based on tales from his friends who are former Special Forces operatives and went on to become anti-poaching fighters. Word is they are looking to make this film in a style similar to Steven Soderbergh’s Traffic, moving from the ground war on poachers in the African savanna to seeing how animal material ends up in the fashion houses of Paris.
While it is unclear if any of the actors will star in the film, it marks one of the few times longtime friends DiCaprio and Maguire have worked together (they’ll be in next summer’s The Great Gatsby). Hardy and DiCaprio costarred in Inception together in 2010.
The production is beginning the search for a writer.
