Samuel L. Jackson takes on Modern Day Pirates
Samuel L. Jackson’s Uppity Films and Andras Hamori’s H20 Motion Pictures are teaming up to acquire to rights to Andrew Mwangura’s life story. Mwangura is a negotiator between the modern day pirated and the owners of ships hijacked off the coast of Africa.
Jackson intends to play the role of Mwangura in the movie, a man who makes his living as a freelance journalist but serves as a negotiator free of charge. He was an ex-marine engineer and now runs the non-profit humanitarian Seafarers’ Assistance Programme.
