New Pirate Movie!
Samuel L. Jackson will headline a movie based on the life of pirate negotiator Andrew Mwangura, Variety reports. Mwangura, a freelance journalist, runs the Seafarers' Assistance Programme, a nonprofit that brokers the safety and freedom of hijacked ships off the Eastern coast of Africa. Last year, he made headlines for negotiating a high-price deal between pirates and the owners of a Ukranian ship secretly carrying weapons bound for the Sudan.
