Boyd, Mullan in talks for 'Lion Inside'

Environmental actioner script penned by Branchflower

Billy Boyd and Peter Mullan are in negotiations to star in ECO Films' ensemble environmental actioner "The Lion Inside," which Richard Jobson will direct this summer in South Africa, Kenya and Cameroon.

Penned by first-time screenwriter Jim Branchflower, the feature is set against the backdrop of illegal logging and wildlife poaching in Central Africa.

ECO Films' Jim Branchflower and Jeff Rodgers and Kalahari Pictures' Michael Murphey are producing, with Marker Entertainment's Paul Emami and Chad Hawkins as exec producers.
