Nick Cassavetes Helming Peacable Kingdom


Nick Cassavetes has signed on to direct the conservation-themed drama Peaceable Kingdom for New Line, says Variety.

The story is based on the true life and work of Dame Daphne Sheldrick, the leading animal conservationist in Kenya, who has devoted her life to preventing elephant extinction by endeavoring to save baby elephants left orphaned by war, poaching and culling.

Jeff Stockwell (Bridge to Terabithia) wrote the screenplay.

New Line is eyeing an early fall start date in Kenya.
