After the success of The Wolf of Wall Street, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill will be back at it again. This time around they’ll be teaming up to tell the story of Richard Jewell, the security guard who was falsely accused as the bomber during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.
The story follows the events of the 1996 Olympics when Richard Jewell discovered a suspicious backpack and evacuated potential victims from the blast. Despite his heroic actions, Jewell became the prime suspect and was shitted on by the media until his name was cleared with the help of his attorney.
Jonah Hill will take on the role of Richard Jewell and DiCaprio will play his lawyer. There is currently no writer or director attached to the film.
