Jackson To Star As Pirate Negotiator

SAMUEL L. JACKSON is following in JOHNNY DEPP's buccaneer footsteps, and starring in a new movie about pirates.
But the Pulp Fiction star won't be portraying a swashbuckling villain - he's signed to play real-life pirate negotiator Andrew Mwangura.
Journalist Mwangura volunteers his time negotiating the release of vessels hijacked off the African coast.
The as-yet-untitled movie will be produced by Andras Hamori who has bought the rights to Mwangura's story - which has been thrust into the limelight after a recent surge in pirate activity.
Hamori tells Daily Variety, "Andrew has the trust of the pirates and the ship owners, and his loyalty is to the kidnapped crews that get caught in the middle of these episodes."
