Angelina Jolie to dIiect Richard Leakey biopic

Angelina Jolie is set to direct a biopic about Kenyan conservationist Richard Leakey and his fight against ivory poachers.

 

The screenplay, by Eric Roth – Forrest Gump writer – is about Kenyan conservationist Richard Leakey, a man who is drawn into violent conflict with elephant poachers, and through this, awakens in himself a deeper understanding of man’s footprint and a strong sense of responsibility for the world. 
 
Leakey, former head of the government’s Kenya Wildlife Service, played a key role in curtailing poaching in the late 1980s, his methods were extreme and included sending helicopter gunships into national parks.
