    Samuel L. Jackson Joins Pirate Film  - Actor will produce and star

    Samuel L. Jackson has secured the rights to the life story of Andrew Mwangura, the negotiator who brokered a deal between pirates and the operators of a hijacked boat off the coast of Africa. The deal was secured through Jackson's production company, Uppity Films.

    Jackson plans to portray Mwangura, a journalist and former marine engineer who heads up the Seafarer's Assistance Programme, a non-profit organization that provides aid to seafarers. Mwangura is not paid a fee for his negotiations with pirates and he makes his living entirely as a freelance writer.
