We know Leonardo DiCaprio's pretty passionate about wildlife, seeing that he's donated $1 million to the World Wildlife Fund and has tweeted extensively about saving tigers. Now, the actor has recruited a few good men to aid him in his mission.
Tobey Maguire and Tom Hardy are on board to help DiCaprio develop a film about poaching over at Warner Bros., a rep for the studio told CNN. As of now, there aren't any acting attachments lined up.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the project is being envisioned as an "animal-trafficking drama," with the idea of creating something similar in structure to the movie "Traffic."
The magazine adds that it's the brainchild of "Dark Knight Rises" star Hardy, who pulled his inspiration from friends serving as anti-poaching fighters in various nations.
Maguire's involvement is less clear, and a rep for the actor tells CNN that the three stars are solely in early discussions about the movie at the present time.

Dear Mr.DiCaprio , i am so excited that you would help us in saving The Tiger . Time is really running out for this magnificent animal . I cannot even begin to tell you how much it hurts when CHINA cannot stop consuming our Tigers and there is NOT ONE SINGLE WORLD LEADER WHO WILL STAND UP AGAINST CHINA . I see how much help is going out to help in the Fight against the POACHING OF ELEPHANTS AND RHINOS, BUT NO REAL GIANT STANDING UP FOR OUR TIGERS . I know you are one of those people who is not scared to speak the honest truth . Could you please hurry and gather up your wonderful friends to help the TIGER . HE REALLY REQUIRES YOUR SUPPORT NOW . Thank you . My prayers and blessings to you . Everyday we are losing a tiger . PLEASE HELP soooooon .

thanks leo you so respected in the community.
Dicaprio is a true star.
Giving back. and caring is what it is all about. Thank You LD and friends!
How about donating a million to help starving kids now. And how about feeding the ones here in America seeing as how more than one third live below the poverty level.
How about those kids parents get off of their asses and get jobs. Why should HE have to donate money to support them?
Always a loser who wants a hand out. The guy work hard for his money and you want him to just give it away. You're a sorry waste of life. Get up off your sorry a-ss and work.Great to see he is doing this for the wild life.
and by the way Jason..have you done your part to donate your money to help the needy, or, are you just another one that runs their money and point out bad things are and expect someone to do it?
Way to go, Broken. That's just what Jesus would've said.
Or, y'know, not.
Stop twisting people's words around. You know exactly what I meant.
Sorry, I'm just in a p!ssy mood and I have a habít of not thínkíng before I speak. Yes, you're right and I was wrong. Jesus wouldn't have done that. Actually, he would have helped both the animals and the people, but people stIll need to get up and do more to help themselves. After all, he also help those who help themselves..just saying.
leo's not a pg.
May God Bless This man for having a heart and not being selfish with his money! It is going into a great cause! It is sad that how alot of people would rather get drugs than to help save the wild life!
Love him, even more respect for him now!
Leo seems like a good man.
