Is this the end for Captain Jack Sparrow?
The actor Samuel L. Jackson will take the roll of a pirate negotiator in a forthcoming film. But this will be no Pirates of the Caribbean swashbuckler. Jackson will play Andrew Mwangura, a negotiator between pirates and the owners of vessels hijacked off the coast of modern-day Africa.
The Hollywood actor’s movie company, Uppity Films, and H20 Motion Pictures, have secured life rights of Mwangura, a journalist and ex-marine engineer who runs the Seafarers’ Assistance Programme, a nonprofit group that offers humanitarian aid to all seafarers.
In the 1998 filmThe Negotiator, Jackson played a hot shot police negotiator in Chicago who takes hostages to try to prove his innocence in a police conspiracy.
