Animal rights movie for Hardy, DiCaprio and Maguire in preparation

Actors Tom Hardy, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire are working together to produce film with an anti-poaching theme for Warner Bros.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the three actors are developing a drama in the vein of Steven Soderbergh's Traffic (2000), with several points of view on animal trafficking in place of the war on drugs.

This project originally conceived by Tom Hardy will tackle everything from the war against poachers in Africa to how animal material ends up in select European fashion houses.

It's unclear whether the three producers will also act in the untitled project. They're in the process of finding a writer.

DiCaprio has been a longtime animal rights activist, devoting time and money to support the elephant welfare cause.
