Tom Hardy is teaming up with Leonardo Dicaprio and Tobey Maguire to produce a new movie.

The 'Warrior' star came up with the idea of an animal-Trafficking drama inspired by friends who are former Special Forces operatives and went on to become anti-poaching fighters in South Africa and other nations and the acting trio are to work on the film for Warner Bros.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film will be structured in a way similar to Steven Soderbergh's 'Traffic' - a multi-story movie about the impacts of The War On Drugs - with the film examining a range of strands including the ground war on poachers in Africa to how animal Skins and furs end up in The Fashion houses of Paris.

At present, Tom, Leonardo and Tobey are not expected to act in the movie but this could change once the scripts are written.

Film bosses are currently looking for a writer for the project.

Tom and Leonardo previously appeared together in 'Inception', while the latter star and Tobey are longterm friends but have rarely worked together, though they both star in 2013 blockbuster 'The Great Gatsby'.
