A movie based on the life of renowned conservationist Richard Leakey, starring Brad Pitt and produced and directed by his wife Angelina Jolie, will be shot in Kenya and not South Africa.

This is contrary to earlier reports in the media which indicated that the movie Africa would be shot in South Africa.

“I have no doubt that whilst the preliminary negotiations are still ongoing and that the storyline and the financing are still being finalized, the intent is still to film in Kenya. It is in Kenya where my life has been and where the film has to be made,” Dr Leakey said in a statement.

Dr Leakey, is famous for his conservationist campaign as the Chairman of Kenya Wild Life Service as well as his work as a paleoanthropologist.
