Greenpeace Story Being Turned Into Major Motion Picture

greenpeace
National’s Treasure director Jon Turteltaub and Naked Gun‘s producer Jerry Zucker will team up behind a new film detailing the birth of the environmental organization Greenpeace.

According to the Guardian, the story will be told through the eyes of Greenpeace’s charismatic founders, Bob Hunter and Rex Weyler.

“We want to look at these unlikely heroes who became activists in spite of themselves,” Janet Zucker (one of the producers) told Variety

“Jon likes to make a big adventure movies. And we’ve found that the best way to reach people’s hearts and minds is through entertainment.”

The title of the movie is yet to be determined.
