Jon Turteltaub is going green, according to Variety.  The National Treasure director is set to helm and produce a Greenpeace biopic with Jerry and Janet Zucker producing.  Set primarily in the late 1970s and early 1980s, story will be told
through the eyes of the controversial organization’s charismatic
founding members, Bob Hunter and Rex Weyler. The duo led an eccentric
group of pacifists, ecologists, musicians, teachers, sailors, and
scientists as they attempted — often successfully — to disrupt
American and French nuclear bomb tests, Japanese and Russian whaling
ships and Norwegian infant harp seal hunters. In the process, they
inadvertently started a movement that is still going strong nearly four
decades later.

No word on casting nor writer info as of yet, although Aaron Sorkin is reportedly on the producers’ short list to script.  Meanwhile, Turteltaub is reuniting with Nicolas Cage for the upcoming The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, due in 2010.  Also no word yet on whether or not the film will be at the Tokyo or Oslo film festivals when it’s done.  My thinking is probably not.
