Leonardo DiCaprio is teaming up with Misher Films and Netflix for The Outlaw Ocean.

The action thrille is based on the series of articles written by investigative reporter Ian Urbina for The New York Times Magazine. DiCaprio will produce with Jennifer Davisson Killoran alongside Kevin Misher for Misher Films and Todd Hoffman. Andy Berman will executive produce for Misher.

The film is based on the true story of a vigilante crew that stalked a fugitive fishing ship considered the world’s most notorious poacher for 110 days and across two seas and three oceans. Urbina documented the events in his six-part series, which “reveals that crime and violence in international waters often goes unpunished.”

DiCaprio maintains a multi-year, first-look deal with Netflix, the focus of which is to produce non-fiction based films and docu-series with topical and provocative environmental themes. Outlaw Ocean is one of the first projects to be set up at under the deal, which was struck in early 2015 following the successful collaboration between DiCaprio and Netflix on the Oscar-nominated documentary Virunga.
